Noises Off! comes to Shoreline Community College

Saturday, November 21, 2015

Widely considered the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off! provides humorous insight into the onstage and offstage challenges of producing a sex comedy called “Nothing On”.

Noises Off! is a superb example of farce: a high-energy comedic romp involving highly improbable events, impeccable timing, misunderstandings and mistaken identities. It is a play within a play written by award winning English playwright Michael Frayn.

Act One is set at the dress rehearsal the night before opening with the cast still fumbling with entrances and exits, missed cues, misspoken lines, and bothersome props, most notably several plates of sardines.

In Act Two, the play is seen from backstage, providing a view that reveals the deteriorating personal relationships among the cast that have led to offstage shenanigans and onstage bedlam.

In Act Three, the play Nothing On is quickly falling apart, lines are dropped and new ones added, and relationships have hilariously deteriorated. The actors attempt to cover up a series of mishaps only to compound the problems and draw attention to the bungling performance.
