Noises Off
By Michael Frayn
Directed by Kevin Miller

Widely considered the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off reveals the hilarious backstage happenings during rehearsals and performances of a play dubbed Nothing's On. Award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn's comedy is a triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and even flying sardines, and it remains a crowd pleaser more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. Watch a manic menagerie of itinerant actors as they try to stitch together a sex comedy that's a sure flop, as out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure.
PLEASE NOTE: There are no performances on July 4th, 2015
