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.
