About the show

Few plays can claim to be as genre-defining as Noises Off, the quintessential play-about-a-play, widely considered to be the peak of farcical comedy. After enjoying great success at the Lyric, Jeremy Herrin’s revival of this Michael Frayn classic now transfers to the West End, ensuring big laughs at the Garrick Theatre.

Noises Off follows the ensemble behind the disastrous flop Nothing On and charts the calamitous action both on and off stage as they fumble their way through rehearsal and performance. If it can possibly go wrong, it does, and the result is a non-stop, high-energy rollercoaster of comedy.

Many original cast members are making the transfer to the West End, including Meera Syal (well-loved star of Goodness Gracious Me and The Kumars at No. 42), Lloyd Owen (The End of Longing), Daniel Rigby (One Man, Two Guvnors and BBC Two’s Eric & Earnie) and Simon Rouse (a long-running regular on The Bill). These core players have proven their deft comedy skills at the Lyric and are guaranteed to bring hearty belly-laughs to the Garrick. The cast joining the production on the West End are Sarah Hadland (Miranda; West End: Admissions), Richard Henders, Lisa McGrillis, Anjli Mohindra and Adrian Richards.

Jeremy Herrin (Labour of Love) and choreographer Joyce Henderson create a tight and fast-flowing production that keeps the laughs coming. Max Jones (Shakespeare in Love - UK Tour) has designed an impressive set that creates a believable and complimentary backdrop for all the comic buffoonery.

This is farce of the highest possible pedigree – a classic that deserves to be revived again and again, performed by an ensemble with incredible comic backgrounds. A staple of British theatre that is not to be missed!

An enjoyable farce that gets more hilarious as it goes on and really ramps up the action after the intermission.
