O’FallonTheatreWorks plays for laughs with the behind-the-scenes farce, Noises Off, at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre

The O’FallonTheatreWorks production of the comedy, Noises Off – reputed to be one the funniest farces ever written – is scheduled to be performed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 4-6 and 11–13, on the stage at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366.

Winner of a Tony Award for Best Play, Noises Off is a hilarious play within a play. Taking its title from a theatrical term for sounds coming from off-stage, Noises Off opens on a dress rehearsal for Nothing’s On with a lot of door slamming, baffled performers who miss entrances, exits and their lines, and props with a mind of their own. During the second act, the audience sees Nothing’s On from backstage, where pandemonium reigns as the actors’ relationships deteriorate. By act three, Nothing’s On is at the end of its run and the actors are undermining their fellow actors’ performances to the point that the plot falls apart, anything goes, and the actors must ad lib their way to a riotous conclusion. The comedy includes adult humor and situations.
