Mathew Horne and Tamzin Outhwaite will join Felicity Kendal, Jonathan Coy, and Alexander Hanson in the company of Michael Frayn’s Noises Off. The award-winning comedy will return to the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 27 September for 12 weeks.

Directed by Lindsay Posner (God of Carnage, Hay Fever, Stones in his Pockets), the celebrated 40th anniversary production opened to critical acclaim at London’s Phoenix Theatre in January 2023.

“I am utterly and totally thrilled to join the now legendary company and production of this masterpiece of a play.” Mathew Horne said in a statement. Felicity Kendal added in a statement: “I am so happy to be revisiting Noises Off and especially at the beautiful Theatre Royal Haymarket.”

Sasha Frost (His Dark Materials, Folk) and Pepter Lunkuse (Hamlet, Nell Gwynn) will also reprise their roles, with Oscar Batterham (Richard III, The One That Got Away) joining the production.

Widely considered one of the greatest British comedies ever written, Michael Frayn's witty play unravels as a riotous a play within a play. As a theatre touring company chaotically navigates through the fictional comedy, Nothing On, we follow on and off-stage antics from shambolic rehearsals in Weston-super-Mare, to a catastrophic final performance in Stockton-on-Tees.

The creative team for this production includes Lindsay Posner (Director), Simon Higlett (Designer), Paul Pyant (Lighting Designer), Greg Clarke (Sound Designer), Will Stuart (Composer), Ruth Cooper-Brown (Movement and Fight Director), George Jibson (Associate Director), and Ginny Schiller (Casting Director).
