Theatre: Noises Off.......
Winner of the Olivier and Evening Standard awards for Best Comedy, this celebrated play serves up a riotous double bill – a play within a play.
Hurtling along at breakneck speed it follows the backstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through rehearsals to a shambolic first night and a final disastrous performance.
This was theatre trip 2of3 from R's Christmas prezzie from me.
We went to the lovely theatre inside the private Woodbridge School.
I've seen this fast farse before and it's hilarious. It actually concentrates on doors and sardines! This one was done by amateurs and unfortunately it wasn't as sharp as it could be but still very funny. R said she really enjoyed it even though she'd felt under the weather all day, so I think an evening giggle or two was just the thing to make her feel a little better.
