Written by Michael Frayn
Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott & Geoff Elliott
One of ANW’s most beloved production is back: Your favorites are ready to rein in the chaos of this joyfully out-of-control British farce about the auspiciously titled play-within-a-play Nothing On. Step behind the curtain and meet the under-rehearsed and over-worked cast and crew with a penchant for drama more personal than professional. As the production progresses, the bumbling cast brings down the house—literally!
Please note that this production will use e-cigarettes and water vapor.
Running Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including two intermissions. Late seating at House Manager’s discretion.

"A Noise Within tackles the comedy with aplomb." - Theatremania
