NOISES OFF is an ingenious play-within-a-play which follows a touring company as they rehearse and present a bedroom farce called Nothing On, filled with slamming doors, mistaken identities, infidelities and scantily clad women. As the characters make their exits from Nothing On, they find themselves in hilarious situations where anything that can go awry, does. In the end, the onstage and offstage worlds collide, creating a scandalously silly and fabulously funny nervous breakdown.
