Noises Off is an absurd look at the process of putting on a play. It is the story a director, stage managers, and actors during the production of a play titled Nothing On, a sexual farce with doors slamming and trousers dropping from time to time. The play follows the performance of Nothing On from the night before the opening to the end of a ten-week run. At that point, the actors, director, and even the set seem to be falling apart at the seems. Of course with chaos comes comedy. The actors include a middle-aged television star, an alcoholic stage legend, an inexperienced actress from London, a leading man who is limited to what’s in the script, and many more personalities that make up this outlandish theater cast and crew. There are love triangles, circles of friends, and just plain squares.
