Update: As you would expect, the economic impact of lockdown has informed our decisions on what we can stage, particularly in the coming months. With this in mind, it is with a heavy heart that we have cancelled our season of Noises Off. You can read more about our updates here.
Director Lloyd Dallas’ latest play is at crisis point. The show opens in a few hours and his cast still don’t know their lines, keep missing their cues and are dropping sardines all over the set!
Described as the funniest play ever written, Noises Off is a timeless satire of theatre itself; taking audiences backstage, where the true show can be found…
Honouring The Court Theatre’s 50th Anniversary, Noises Off is a celebration of what theatre can be - in all its messy, unpredictable and wondrous glory.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS PLAY
“This masterful farce is a brilliant way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Court Theatre. This wonderfully delirious portrayal of the people who make plays is filled with wild theatricality and savage defamation. You won’t care either way, because you will be laughing your a*** off.”
– Lead Director, Ross Gumbley
