Theatre Royal Bath Productions has announced that Felicity Kendal will star in the 40th Anniversary production of Michael Frayn‘s celebrated stage farce, NOISES OFF.
Directed by Lindsay Posner, the award-winning play will begin a pre-West End tour at Theatre Royal Bath from 21 September to 1 October 2022, before heading to Richmond Theatre (4 October – 15 October), Theatre Royal Brighton (18 October – 22 October) and Cambridge Arts Theatre (25 October – 29 October).
Further casting to be announced.
Michael Frayn’s celebrated play serves up a riotous double bill – a play within a play. Hurtling along at breakneck speed, NOISES OFF follows the on and off-stage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On.
From the shambolic final rehearsals before opening night in Weston-super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-Under-Lyme seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, before we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.
