A farce about putting on a farce, provides comedic insight in the onstage and backstage challenges of opening a show involving highly improbable events, misunderstandings and mistaken identities. We meet the cast and crew of Nothing On (the play within the play) the night before opening as the actors struggle with entrances, exits and getting props in their right place at the right time. As tensions mount the actors leave the audience wondering…will they get it right before opening night? As the play progresses dysfunctional relationships are starting to take their toll on the production all the way to closing night when they are barely holding it together. As the mishaps pile up the actors and crew attempt to save what they can of the disastrous performance and bring it to a salvageable conclusion.
CAUTIONS: If this were a movie it would be rated PG-13. Noises Off includes mild adult themes. Pre-teens and teens who watch prime-time TV won’t see much to shock them, but depending on the personality and exposure of your younger children, they may be confused. Your own judgment is the best guide for your family.
