A Noise Within (ANW), the acclaimed classic repertory theatre company, is bringing back its smash hit production of Michael Frayn’s hilarious off-the-wall comedy Noises Off (see South Pasadenan review here) for a limited engagement from May 21 through June 9, 2019. Reviving a critical and audience favorite for all to enjoy, ANW Producing Artistic Directors Julia RodriguezElliott and Geoff Elliott will once again direct the play-within-a-play that pays homage to the art of theatre-making as chaos reigns onstage and off!

Noises Off is truly one of our signature productions, with audience members returning to see it two or more times,” says Director Geoff Elliott. Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott adds, “Everything about the deft physical and verbal interplay between actors is ideal for A Noise Within’s focus on ensemble work.”

Frayn’s joyfully out-of-control British farce features an under-rehearsed and over-worked cast and crew with a penchant for drama more personal than professional, readying themselves for the world premiere of a new play with the auspicious title, Nothing On . As the production progresses, the bumbling cast brings down the house – literally!

ANW’s previous stagings of Frayn’s outlandish production have won rave reviews from critics, whose praise included “a superb cast hit the banana peel running and never let up” ( Los Angeles Times ); “laser sharp comic timing” ( Broadway World ); “A Noise Within tackles the comedy with aplomb” ( TheaterMania ); and “delivered with expert precision by the crackerjack cast, to its ultimate, ridiculously fantastic conclusion. At which point you may be unable to breathe.” (South Pasadenan)
