The British play Noises Off is bound to have you in stitches. Written by Michael Frayn, Noises Off can be considered a farce within a comedy and gives an inside look at all the antics of the theatre: the ups, downs, backstabbing, and relationships that form while a play is being produced and performed.

Noises Off follow a group of actors preparing for a cringe-worthy production called “Nothing-On.” What follows is on-stage misdirection, misunderstandings, doors that will not work, and props that aren’t there. Theatregoers are promised a glimpse of what happens backstage as the stage will literally turn. The actor’s best and worst sides are displayed, revealing their mysteries of trying to keep track of their newspapers, plants, lovers, missing cast members and a few plates of Sardines.

Noises Off will be featuring third-year students of the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts of the University of the Free State. Directed by Thys Heydenrych. It will be performed from 26 to 29 September 2018 at the Wynand Mouton Theatre, UFS campus, at 19:30. Tickets are available at Computicket.

This production is appreciated by an audience of age 15 and over because of a more … grown-up storyline.

The production is made possible with the support from Creative Kilowatt and Iewers Nice.
