‘Noises Off’ follows the onstage and offstage antics of a British second-rate theatre company as they stumble from dress rehearsal to disastrous final night of a third-rate comedy called Nothing On.
Each of the three acts of Noises Off contains a performance of the first act of Nothing On.
Act One is set during the dress rehearsal, the night before opening with the cast still fumbling with entrances and exits, missed cues, etc.
Act Two portrays a Wednesday matinee performance one month later. In this act,the play is seen from backstage, providing a view that reveals the deteriorating personal relationships among the cast that have led to offstage shenanigans and onstage bedlam.
In Act Three, we see a performance near the end of the ten-week run, when personal friction has continued to increase and everyone is bored and anxious to be done with the play. The actors attempt to cover up a series of mishaps but only compound the problems and draw attention to the bungling performance.
