Noises Off

Noises off moves to its new at Novello theatre after a run at the Old Vic Theatre. The production is the latest staging of Michael Frayn’s 1982 play, which has been seen at various venues in the capital from the West End to the National Theatre. It also boasts an impressive cast working under the talented director Lindsay Posner and they include Celia Imrie, Janie Dee and Robert Glenister, among others.

“Noises Off” has something in common with another show running in the capital – “Pippin” at the Menier Chocolate Factory – and this is because it features a play within a play as a group of amateur performers decide to tour their latest show – a comedy called “Nothing On”. In the process we first had how the antics taking place behind the scenes can sometimes rivals those going on onstage. First there are the disastrous rehearsals, then the dramatic personal relationships and they all work to make “Noises Off” a show to remember.

Actress Janie Dee is no stranger to the stage, whether it is in the West End or other venues in the capital, from “Shadowlands” and “Comic Potential” at West End venues like the Wyndham’s Theatre and the Lyric Theatre or “Enter the Guardsman”, which appeared at the Donmar Warehouse. For those that regularly pick up theatre tickets to witness well known shows, she will be a familiar face for those that witness “Noises Off” when it arrives in London.

Then there’s Robert Glenister, an actor who has appeared in various well known television shows over a long career, which saw him appear in “Doctor Who” during its original run, and other shows like “Only Fools and Horses”, “Hustle”, “Spooks”, “Spartacus” and “George Gently”.

In addition to those already mentioned cast will also include Jamie Glover (known for appearing in “Waterloo Road”), Karl Johnson, Aisling Loftus, Amy Nuttall and Paul Ready.
