“Noises Off” 

Opening June 10th at The Bayou – Tickets Now On Sale!

Called “the funniest farce ever written,” by the New York Post, Noises Off  by Michael Frayn, presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing On”.  Directed for CCCT by Thomas Meek, Frayn conceived the idea in 1970 while watching from the wings a performance of The Two of Us, a farce that he had written for Lynn Redgrave. He said, “It was funnier from behind than in front, and I thought that one day I must write a farce from behind the set.” Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and many plates of sardines all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. It takes its title from the theatrical stage direction indicating sounds coming from offstage.

Here are some reviews from the opening of the New York production:

“The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium.” – The New York Times

“As side-splitting a farce as I have seen. Ever? Ever.” – New York Magazine

“Bumper car brilliance […] If laughter is indeed the best medicine, Noises Off is worth its weight in Cipro.” – New York Daily News

The funniest farce ever written! Never before has side-splitting taken on a meaning dangerously close to the non-metaphorically medical.” – New York Post

“As side-splitting a farce as I have seen. Ever? Ever.” – New York Magazine
