Noises off at the Opera House

20130520-142011.jpgThe Old Vic and West-End smash hit, Noises Off, comes to the Grand Opera House Belfast on 1st July following its triumphant and critically acclaimed sell out run in London.

Hailed as one of the greatest British comedies ever written, Michael Frayn’s multi award-winning backstage farce serves up a riotous double bill – a play within a play.

Hurtling along at breakneck speed it follows the backstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through rehearsals, to a shambolic first night in Weston-super-Mare, and a final disastrous performance in Stockton-on-Tees.

I checked out some reviews of the London run in 2011 and also of the current touring production and they are positively glowing and mostly 5 star!

‘Noises Off’ seems to be up there with ’One Man, Two Guvners’ when it comes to laugh out loud nights at the theatre, and as I loved the latter so much, I am very excited to get to the Opera House to see Noises Off.

Here’s what some reviewers had to say about it:

One of ‘the funniest plays you could ever hope to see and echoes with the sound of laughter’ Michael Billington , The Guardian, 14 December 2011

‘is about as good as physical comedy gets: a richly detailed tapestry of catastrophe’ Time Out London Dec 2011

Noises Off is a deeply entertaining and satisfying, even interesting, piece of theatre. Alan Geary, Nottingham Post April 2013
