9780573113123: Noises Off - A Play

Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. "The play opens with a touring company dress-rehearsing Nothing On, a conventional farce. Mixing mockery and homage, Frayn heaps into this play-within-a-play a hilarious melée of stock characters and situations.

From the Back Cover:

“Spectacularly funny . . . a peerless backstage comedy.” –Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“First-rate. . . . Clever and intricately crafted. . . . Sublime.” –The Boston Globe

“Ingenious. . . . Madcap.” –The Wall Street Journal

“A triumph. . . . An essential hysterical fix. . . . Masterly.” –The New York Observer

“[A] frisky, freewheeling sex comedy about actors in a frisky, freewheeling sex comedy.” –USA Today

“A comic masterpiece.” –Daily Telegraph

“Blissful fun.” –The New Yorker

From the Inside Flap:

Noises Off," the classic farce by the Tony Award--winning author of "Copenhagen, is not one play but two: simultaneously a traditional sex farce, "Nothing On, and the backstage "drama" that develops during "Nothing On's final rehearsal and tour. The two begin to interlock as the characters make their exits from "Nothing On only to find themselves making entrances into the even worse nightmare going on backstage. In the end, at the disastrous final performance, the two plots can be kept separate no longer, and coalesce into a single collective nervous breakdown.
