As a touring troupe desperately try to hold their shambolic production of ‘Nothing On’ together, and with under 24 hours to go before curtain-up, it’s downhill all the way through their dress rehearsal. Backstage antics, forgotten lines, not-so secret romances, hilarious malfunctions and a tin of sardines threaten to result in a disastrous first performance.

Noises Off was awarded both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Comedy when it was first presented.

Director, Blanche McIntyre said: “Noises Off is the greatest farce ever written and one of the great classics of modern theatre. I couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to direct it - it's something I've wanted to do for years. I'm thrilled to be working on it with the brilliant and daring producing theatres of Nottingham Playhouse, Northern Stage, and Nuffield Southampton. It's a privilege to take this play to their different audiences.”
