Joe Egg extends, Noises Off transfer delayed

Peter Nichol's A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, has been extended by two weeks at the Comedy Theatre and is now taking bookings to 9th Feb 02. Directed by Laurence Boswell, the play currently features Eddie Izzard, Victoria Hamilton, Prunella Scales , John Warnaby and Robin Weaver .

The drama concerns Bri and Sheila, and their severely mentally handicapped child (nicknamed Joe Egg) aged 10. The parents invent conversations and personality traits for the child, even though it seems unable to communicate in any way itself. As Bri and Sheila begin to fabricate scenarios, their marriage comes under increasing strain.

 

Michael Frayn's Noises Off, which was due to transfer to the Comedy Theatre on 9th Feb 02 has been delayed by 2 weeks. The show will now open on 20th Feb 02. (The show is currently playing at the Piccadilly Theatre until 26th Jan 02). Directed by Jeremy Sams, the current cast includes Isla Blair, Chris Langham and Robert Portal.

Everything that can go wrong does, as the cast desperately try to hang on to their lines, their performances and furniture....resulting in a terrifying descent into chaos.

 

 

Looking for the best seats...
