A modern classic of British theatre, and quite probably the funniest play you’ll ever see on stage, Noises Off returns to the Lowry in Salford next week.
Michael Frayn’s backstage farce looks at the hilarious consequences of taking an inept theatre company on the road.
It stars Neil Pearson (Drop the Dead Donkey, and Bridget Jones’ Diary) and Maureen Beattie (Lewis, The Bill, Taggart, Casualty).
Inspired to write the piece by watching one of his own plays from the wings and seeing it was funnier from behind, Frayn’s three-part tale is directed by Olivier winner Lindsay Posner for this Old Vic production, which premiered in 2011 to widespread acclaim.
