Noises Off - full cast announced at Old Vic
The cast has been announced for Noises Off by Michael Frayn, which opens at the Old Vic theatre 13 Dec 2011, following previews from 3 Dec, booking to 25 Feb 2012.
Cast includes Jonathan Coy (Frederick Fellowes), Janie Dee (Belinda Blair), Robert Glenister (Lloyd Dallas), Jamie Glover (Roger Tramplemain), Celia Imrie (Dotty Otley), Karl Johnson (Selsdon Mowbray), Aisling Loftus (Poppy Norton-Taylor), Amy Nuttall (Brooke Ashton), Paul Ready (Tim Allgood).
Directed by Lindsay Posner, designed by Peter McKintosh.
Noises Off follows the amateur touring production of a dreadful sex comedy Nothing On, as it travels around the country. From the disastrous dress rehearsal with the cast still fumbling with entrances and exits and bothersome props, to the final performance of missed cues and forgotten lines, Noises Off portrays the explosive personal relationships that have led to off-stage shenanigans and on-stage bedlam.
