Nothing on Productions Presents Noises Off

May 24 - May 27

Poster

May 24, 25, 26 at 8pm
May 27 at 2pm

Each of the three acts of Noises Off contains a performance of the first act of a play within a play, a sex farce called Nothing On. Nothing On is the type of play in which young girls run about in their underwear, old men drop their trousers, and many doors continually bang open and shut. Act One is at the technical rehearsal – it is midnight, the night before the first performance and the cast are hopelessly unready. Act Two shows a matinée performance one month later. In this act, the play is seen from backstage, providing a view that emphasises the deteriorating relationships between the cast. Romantic rivalries, lovers’ tiffs and personal quarrels lead to offstage shenanigans, onstage bedlam and the occasional attack with a fire axe. In Act Three, we see a performance near the end of the ten week run. The actors remain determined at all costs to cover up the mounting chaos, but it is not long before the plot of Nothing On has to be abandoned entirely! Come out and have a night of laughs with Nothing On Productions!!
