Noises Off by Michael Frayn is opening at Florence Simmons Performance Hall in Charlottetown this month.
The Play portrays a harried stage director and rag tag team of actors who are putting together a farce called Nothing On. Misplaced props, doors that won’t open, and a love triangle or two all contribute to the chaos behind the scenes.
“My hope is that the audience is left briefly overwhelmed by laughter and the sheer size of what we are pulling off” says Director Keir Malone. “People should come to this show more than once. There is so much to see!”
Noises Off was originally planned to celebrate ACT’s (a community theatre) 25th anniversary in 2020.
“Noises Off was the fourth show that ACT had done, back in 1996. It showed me how quickly ACT grew and changed, and that was a part of our history that I wanted to celebrate.”
Performances take place May 5 and 6 at 7:30 pm, May 7 at 2 pm, and May 10–13 at 7:30 pm. For more information visit actpei.com. Tickets at ticketpro.ca and at the door
