Jeremy Herrin directs 'Noises Off' at the Lyric

Jeremy Herrin's revival of 'Noises Off' opens to rave reviews.

Michael Frayn's classic comedy follows a ramshackle theatre company through their torturous technical, drama backstage, to the productions final weeks. Jeremy Herrin brings it home to The Lyric where it first premiered in 1982. 

★★★★ 'It unfolds at incredible pace, yet there is great attention to the detail of each character and of the levers of farce itself'. What's On Stage

★ 'This rollicking revival – technical hitches included – reminds you that, when done well, there are few things funnier.' Time Out

★ 'What a joyous silly play this is, especially when done this well.' The Times

★★★★ 'An entertaining production that hit a real-life on-stage glitch.' The Guardian
