About Noises Off

Don’t miss the return of Michael Frayn’s timeless comedy Noises Off at the Phoenix Theatre. Book Black Friday Noises Off tickets in London on TodayTix.

In this hilarious "play-within-a-play," you'll discover what happens behind the stage curtain. Told over three acts, the show follows a touring theatre company at different stages of putting on a fictional story — Nothing On. From the very beginning, it's pretty clear that nothing will go right: final rehearsals in Weston-super-Mare, matinee performances in Ashton-Under-Lyme, and the last performance in Stockton-on-Tees all have their issues.

The chaos in this comedy play isn't just down to Nothing On though. In this farce, there are mistaken identities, lost props, and angry directors and stage managers all demanding that the show must go on. But can the show go on?

See one of the greatest British comedy plays. Book Noises Off tickets on TodayTix.

More information about Noises Off

Michael Frayn’s comedy started at Lyric Hammersmith in 1982 and soon took over the West End. Noises Off ran at the Savoy Theatre for five years and won an Olivier Award for Best Comedy. Even though the play relies on British humour, audiences continue to laugh worldwide: three Broadway productions featuring the likes of Patti LuPone and Megan Hilty demonstrate its universal appeal.

Noises Off returned to the Lyric Hammersmith — and eventually a West End transfer — in 2019, featuring Meera Syal as Dotty Otley. Forty years after its first performance, Noises Off in London celebrated its milestone anniversary at the Phoenix Theatre at the beginning of 2023, and will return to the West End for a limited run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

What to Watch For:

  • Felicity Kendal will play Dotty Otley. The Good Life star appears in her second West End show in two years — she also played Evangeline Harcourt in Anything Goes.
  • You’re spoilt for choice with the West End actors involved with the show. The cast includes Matthew Horne, Jonathan Coy, Tamzin Outhwaite, and Alexander Hanson.
  • If you’ve been in a play before, you may recognise people you know in some of the characters: Lloyd Dallas is the director, performer Frederick Fellowes has a fear of blood, Belinda Blair keeps the peace between cast members, plus there’s Tim Allgood, the overworked stage manager.
  • The Noises Off play started out as a short show, called Exits. The show title changed to acknowledge the offstage sounds you may hear during a performance.
