Michael Frayn’s riotous comedy Noises Off enters stage right at Blackpool Grand Theatre on Tuesday 3 to Saturday 7 October, direct from a triumphant West End season, with stage and screen favourites Liza Goddard, Matthew Kelly and Simon Shepherd.

Frayn’s ever popular play-within-a-play hurtles along at breakneck speed as it follows the on and off stage antics of a hapless touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On.

Noises Off will race into The Grand this October with an all-star cast which includes the much-loved actress Liza Goddard - whose extensive stage comedy credits include Life of Riley, Communicating Doors, Season’s Greetings and Relatively Speaking, as Dotty Otley; renowned theatre actor Matthew Kelly - who won the Olivier Award for Of Mice and Men and whose many West End credits include Waiting for Godot, Comedians and Troilus and Cressida, as Selsdon Mowbray, and top TV and theatre actor Simon Shepherd from ITV’s Peak Practice and the highly acclaimed West End productions of Posh, The Duck House, Rapture, Art and Hay Fever as Lloyd Dallas.

This talented trio will be joined by top stage and screen actors Simon Coates as Frederick Fellowes, Lucy Robinson as Belinda Blair, Daniel Rainford as Tim Allgood, Dan Fredenburgh as Garry Lejeune, Lisa Ambalavanar as Brooke Ashton and Nikhita Lesler as Poppy Norton-Taylor.

From the shambolic final rehearsals before opening night in Weston-super-Mare, to a disastrous show matinee in Ashton-under-Lyne; Noises Off is ‘packed with visual and verbal gags’ and is all seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage before we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees…

Noises Off is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest British comedies ever written and was first published by English playwright Michael Frayn in 1982.

Loved by the critics, with reviews ranging from ‘pure comic bliss and ‘dazzlingly brilliant’ to ‘blissfully and brilliantly funny’ and ‘one of the most joyous farces ever written’; this must-see production is brimming with slapstick comedy complete with dropped trousers, slamming doors and flying sardines!

Don’t miss out on all the fun this October! Book your seats now.

Michael Frayn’s Noises Off starring Liza Goddard, Matthew Kelly and Simon Shepherd is at Blackpool Grand Theatre from Tuesday 3 to Saturday 7 October 2023 with evening and matinee performances.
