Garrick Theatre, London
★★★★ "The funniest farce ever written." Evening Standard
Michael Frayn's iconic backstage comedy Noises Off transfers to the West End, following a triumphant sell-out season at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre.
With technical brilliance and split-second timing, it takes us behind the scenes with a company of actors in a hilarious and heartfelt tribute to the unpredictability of life in the theatre. Hailed as one of the funniest plays of
all time, the Olivier Award-winning Noises Off originally premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in 1982 and instantly became a timeless British comedy.
In an exuberant new production by Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons, Wolf Hall, This House), Noises Off arrives at the Garrick Theatre for a strictly limited run, for fans to enjoy and new audiences to discover.
