SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga University’s Magnuson Theatre will launch its 2013-14 season with the British comedy “Noises Off.” Directed by C.D. Adamson, the show will run Oct. 25-26 and Nov. 1-3.
Written by English playwright Michael Frayn and presented with special arrangement by Samuel French, Inc., “Noises Off” is a farce about the play “Nothing On,” which is a purposefully awful farce about romantic relationships. This play-within-a-play is persistently interrupted as a cast of manic actors come and go, often at the wrong time and through the wrong doors, while off-stage happenings lead to on-stage chaos, and don’t forget the sardines! The confusion endures from the first rehearsal to the final performance.
Adamson, Ph.D., assistant professor of theater, said he is excited for the production and calls the comedy, “literally one of the funniest shows ever written and our audiences are going to be in for a treat.”
