Barn Theatre Club presents
This famous farce tracks the progress into disaster of a rather bad play, seen both onstage and backstage.
This is a special notice 1...something that may be of interest to an audience
Michael Frayn’s play never misses a trick. Its first act is a pastiche of traditional farce; the second, a variant on it; the third, an elaborate undermining of it. A touring company rehearse Nothing On, a conventional farce.
Mixing mockery and homage, Frayn heaps into this play-within-a-play characters and situations in a hilarious mêlée. We see the onstage farce and also revealed is the farce behind the scenes in the astonishingly ingenious middle act. Cheery char, outraged wife and squeaky blonde — voices rise and trousers fall.
Free-of-charge pre- and post-show talks now feature at the Barn on the following nights:
