by Michael Frayn
Directed by Edward Stern
March 19 - April 13
Disasters abound as a frantic, sleep-deprived touring company of actors rehearses and performs their fictional farce, Nothing On. Too many doors, too many sardines and not near enough time combine to create a riotously funny situation on and off stage for both cast and crew. Michael Frayn’s intricately crafted mayhem is hailed as one of the greatest comedies ever written.
Simply the funniest. Ever. The ultimate backstage farce shows that what can go wrong absolutely will go wrong - with hilariously disastrous results!
