It is difficult to imagine Michael Frayn’s marvellous contraption of a farce falling over its own feet any more fluently and hilariously than it does in this show.
The play centres on a third-rate English stage company performing a fifth-rate sex comedy called Nothing On, which boils down to not much more than sardines, slammed doors and a pretty girl in her underwear.
In Act I, we meet the creatives (the word can only be loosely applied), as a dress rehearsal reaches its crisis point. Act II revolves the set to focus on the backstage shenanigans of a disintegrating provincial tour. Act III throws forward to Nothing On’s final performance, in which all of Frayn’s expertly laid comic landmines are detonated, one after the other.
Once again we are pleased to say we have assembled a fantastic cast, under the direction of Joe Isaia, and are confident that you will enjoy an evening of hysterical laughter at The Old Mill Theatre.
