Transylvania University Theater presents the classic Michael Frayn comedy “Noises Off,” Feb. 21 –March 1

LEXINGTON, Ky.—The wildly wacky comedy “Noises Off” opens at Transylvania Thursday, Feb. 21 in the Lucille C. Little Theater. Showtimes for the well-known British farce are Feb. 21-23, 28-29 and March 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10.

“Noises Off” has been called the funniest farce ever written and is about a group of actors putting on a play called “Nothing On.” It’s a typical bedroom farce, but the actors are having all sorts of difficulties memorizing the lines, handling props and dealing with backstage relationships and a dilettante director. What goes on behind the scenes is funnier, sexier and more absurd than the comedy being performed onstage. In theatrical stage directions, the term "noises off" refers to sounds that are meant to be heard from offstage.

Drama professor Tim Soulis said that directing this hilarious comedy has been a wonderfully delightful experience. “Our rehearsals at times have mirrored the confusion on stage in the play within the play,” he said. “The experience becomes a hall of mirrors in which we can’t tell where the play ends and rehearsal begins.”

If you want an evening or afternoon of non-stop laughter where everything that can go wrong, does, you won’t want to miss “Noises Off.”
