"Noises Off" comedy | Timber Lake Playhouse

Laughter is the best medicine

Michael Frayn’s Noises Off  takes a fond look at the follies of theater folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure.


This play-within-a-play captures a touring theater troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run.

Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of a theater behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and — of course — flying sardines!


The show runs June 20-30. Evening performances at 7:30 p.m. & matinees start at 2 p.m.
