★★★★ "The funniest farce ever written." Evening Standard
Michael Frayn’s iconic backstage comedy Noises Off transfers to the West End, following a triumphant sell-out season at the Lyric Hammersmith.
Starring Lloyd Owen, Daniel Rigby, Simon Rouse, Meera Syal. The cast is completed by Sarah Hadland, Richard Henders, Lisa McGrillis, Anjli Mohindra and Adrian Richards.
With technical brilliance and split-second timing, it takes us behind the scenes with a company of actors in a hilarious and heartfelt tribute to the unpredictability of life in the theatre. Hailed as one of the funniest plays of all time, the Olivier Award-winning Noises Off originally premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith in 1982 and instantly became a timeless British comedy.
In an exuberant new production by Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons, Wolf Hall, This House), Noises Off arrives at the Garrick Theatre for a strictly limited run, for fans to enjoy and new audiences to discover.
★★★★★ "It is quite simply a masterpiece." WhatsOnStage
★★★★ "These times call for laughter - and this delivers." Sunday Times
★★★★ "As thrilling as ever." The Guardian
Hilarious show enjoyed by the whole audience. I would highly recommend it.
This was the 5th time I’ve seen Noises off but I really enjoyed the changes that were made. 1st time for my friend who loved it. A real tonic. How the actors cope with 2 performances I don’t know!
Excellent show with wonderful slapstick timing. We laughed all evening.
Absolutely brilliant production. So reminds of "church hall amateur dramatics!" Had us in stitches from beginning to end, superb acting and wonderful comic timing exhibited by all players. Well done. When's the next production coming?
Brilliant farce, perfect timing, laughs galore. My only disappointment was that, having seen it years ago, they turned the set around behind the curtain and not for the audience to view. But, hey, it might be because of the Garrick’s constraints. All in all, seriously good.
It was a most enjoyable evening. Great actors. Amazing energy and a very clever script.
