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.

Talkbacks are scheduled for Friday, January 23rd, and Sunday, February 1st. Hosted by Michael Heimos.

THE STILL ALARM

The hotel bedroom is on fire.  In the face of crackling flames, deadly heat, and imminent catastrophe, the guests, the bellboy, and the firemen remain resolutely British.

 

BLACK COMEDY

When light illuminates the stage for the audience, the characters can’t see — they plunge into a world of darkness.  Unfortunately, this happens to be the night when desperate sculptor Brindsley Miller has “borrowed” furniture and art from the absent collector next door to impress his fiancée’s intimidating father and a wealthy art dealer.

When the collector unexpectedly returns, only to be joined by a tipsy tee-totaling spinster, a horny ex-girlfriend, and a German electrician, Brindsley frantically tries to keep everyone in the dark long enough to return the stolen items before light is restored, illusions are shattered, and his lies are revealed.

When the lights go out, the laughter begins.

BLACK COMEDY.  The most fun you’ll ever have in the dark.

Audience Talk-Backs will immediately follow the performances on May 8th and May 17th.
