By Michael Frayn. Hobart Repertory Theatre Society. Playhouse Theatre, Hobart (Tas). Director: Ingrid Ganley. August 5 – 20, 2011
A play within a play is an opportunity for Hobart Repertory Theatre Society to showcase the superb talents of its core group of actors, in its latest incarnation of Noises Off, written by Michael Frayn.
The play, described by director Ingrid Ganley as “the most fun you can have rehearsing a show”, is a fast-paced classic farce. “Simultaneously a traditional sex farce Nothing On, and the backstage “drama” that develops during rehearsal of Nothing On and then later on tour”, the show is side-splittingly funny.
