It was so much fun to perform in. Timing is crucial, as in all good farces. I had to do my own stunt work also, including a somersault over a bed. Quite a feat for an out-of-shape 60-year-old.I looked up the play. It sounds hilarious - just the sort of thing I like to watch. But I imagine it’s much more difficult to direct, and act in, than a “normal” play because timing is so important. One of my absolute favourites (the film version too) is Noises Off!. I’ve seen it several times and just love it.
ive been involved in two productions of Noises Off. The first I was stage manager, supervising the rotation of the stage and making sure all the sardines, newspapers, boxes and doors were in place. (Horrible job. I had to run lights and sound also.) The second time, I played Selsdon, the drunken “burglar”, and was nominated for a local award for it. I love, love, love that play. The movie is quite different, but funny in its own way.
