Noises Off Tickets

Michael Frayn’s beloved backstage farce celebrates its 40th anniversary with a perfectly-pitched revival starring Felicity Kendal.

The ultimate backstage comedy returns

There’s chaos on and off stage in Michael Frayn’s Noises Off! The classic comedy returns to the West End for its 40th anniversary, with a cast led by Felicity Kendal.

With razor sharp timing and mischevious humour, Noises Off is one of the most beloved British comedies ever staged. It follows a touring theatre company’s disastrous attempts to present their latest show, Nothing On. They stumble their way through rehearsals, fumble through a performance in Ashton-under-Lyne, and deliver their cringe-worthy pièce de résistance: an absolutely catastrophic show in Stockton-on-Tees.

Michael Frayn’s play-within-a-play debuted in 1982 and has been entertaining audiences across the UK with non-stop mishaps and high-energy physical comedy ever since. Now in its fourth decade, Theatre Royal Bath and director Lyndsay Posner’s anniversary production transfers to the Phoenix Theatre.

The Noises Off West End cast boasts actors with fantastic comic backgrounds who’ll have you rolling in the aisles, including Felicity Kendal as Dotty Otley, Katherine Kingsley as Belinda Blair and Matthew Kelly as Selsdon Mowbray.

It’s one of the UK’s most popular farces and hasn’t lost its hilarious touch after all these years. Book Noises Off tickets and find out why it has become a classic.
