More Than 150 Years of St. Mark's Thanksgivings

NOISES OFF—Fall Play is Hilarious Backstage Comedy

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings this week, the St. Mark's Theater Arts Department will present Noises Off, a 1982 comedy by English playwright Michael Frayn. Often considered one of the funniest plays ever written, Noises Off is not one play but two - simultaneously a traditional British farce as well as the backstage farce that develops during fictional play's final rehearsal and tour. Over the course of three acts, the two storylines begin to interlock, as the characters make their exits from the stage only to find themselves confronted by the chaos and infighting going on between the cast backstage.
