Noises Off follows a theatrical company to a small
town as they rehearse and perform Nothing On. Instead of a play within a play
it's more like a farce within a farce. We see the cast backstage embroiled in
peccadilloes and petty bickering and onstage in character trying to hit their
marks and keep their lines straight. A classic English farce, Noises Off throws
in much opening and closing of doors and many entrances and exits. It's
sometimes difficult to keep up with the fast-paced action, but that's as it
should be to keep the audience confused and amused.
