Went to see Felicity Kendal, Jonathan Coy, Matthew Kelly, Tracy-Ann Oberman in Noises Off last night at the Theatre.
The play serves up a riotous double bill – a play within a play. Hurtling along at breakneck speed, Noises Off follows the on and off-stage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On.
From the shambolic final rehearsals before opening night in Weston-super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-Under-Lyme seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, before we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees
It was well written, superbly acted and hilariously funny. It was good to be able to go back to the theatre.
