Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Trapped in a shabby tour of that hapless play, the cast suffers through a disastrous dress rehearsal, amorous rivalries, and despair as the tour stumbles towards its end. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this classically comic play.
