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.
