Careening along at breakneck speeds, Noises Off shows the on and offstage antics of a touring theatre company. We watch as they stumble their way through mounting their fictional farce, Nothing On, from the chaotic final rehearsals before their opening night in Weston-Super-Mare to a completely calamitous matinee in Ashton-Under-Lyme (which we see entirely, and uproariously silently, from backstage). We even get to share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.
This classic British comedy takes us behind the scenes and backstage with a company of actors as they struggle to prepare for and then finish a run of their newest show. We get to watch from different angles and iterations as our actors’ relationships turn sour behind the scenes and just how much that seeps out into the show taking place on the stage.
Noises Off is known for its technical complexity and split-second timing. An immediate hit when it premiered, Noises Off quickly transferred to the West End’s Savoy Theatre where it would go on to run for five years.
The show had multiple Tony award-nominated runs on Broadway and numerous London revivals including productions at the Piccadilly Theatre in the West End, The National Theatre, and London’s Old Vic. With its unique peek behind the curtain at life in the world of theatre, the show became a favourite of professional and amateur companies around the world. It would go on to be made into a 1992 film with a star-studded cast including Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Christopher Reeve, John Ritter, and Nicollette Sheridan.

The Theatre Royal Haymarket first opened its doors in 1821 and was affectionately known as the “Little Theatre in the Hay”. In 1873, it became the first theatre to host a matinee performance, showing a West End production in the afternoon.
In the 21st century, the Theatre Royal Haymarket has hosted a number of shows featuring West End stars and global talent. Waiting for Godot saw Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart on stage, while Flare Path featured Sienna Miller and Sheridan Smith.
The auditorium at the Theatre Royal Haymarket has four levels – Stalls, Royal Circle, Upper Circle, and Gallery. The seating in the Stalls is particularly good, as the overhang of the Dress Circle only affects the view from Row V onwards.
The Royal Circle offers an excellent view of the stage, and the overhang of the Upper Circle does not affect the view from any seat.
Seats in the Upper Circle curve towards the stage at the sides and do not offer great legroom, but they provide pretty good views for the price.
The Gallery, on the other hand, feels far from the stage.
