Called “the funniest farce ever written,” (Clive Barnes, The New York Post) Noises Off presents a hilarious behind-the-scenes peek at an acting troupe rehearsing and performing the comedy “Nothing’s On.” After barely making it from final dress rehearsal to opening night, things quickly deteriorate during the run, culminating in a closing night disaster that threatens to jinx the old saying, “The show must go on.” In three acts: Act One, Act One, and Act One.
“Humanity has unquestionably one really effective weapon—laughter. Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution—these can lift at a colossal humbug—push it a little—weaken it a little, century by century, but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.”
— Mark Twain
