As this rip-roaring farce unfolds at breakneck speed, the backstage dramas of a touring theatre company threaten to derail the show, with hilarious consequences.

Noises Off lifts the curtain on the ups and downs on-stage and behind-the-scenes as bungled romances collide with wayward sardines, forgotten lines and just a few precious egos!

A shambolic dress rehearsal limps to a frantic opening night in Weston-Super-Mare and then it’s downhill all the way to the Municipal Theatre in Stockton-On-Tees. Can director Lloyd hold the show together? (No) Will Selsdon stay sober long enough to make his entry on time? (No) Does Dotty know whether she is coming or not? (Absolutely not) The show must go on!

Winner of the Olivier and Evening Standard awards for Best Comedy, Noises Off is hailed as one of the greatest British comedies ever written. It has delighted millions since it premiered in 1982.

Join us for a door-slamming, axe-wielding, trouser dropping lineup of laughs to welcome the spring!
