"Noises Off", farce in Malvern this Saturday
Noises Off will be playing in Malvern till August 4. I've got a ticket for 2:00 PM Saturday-- let me know if you'd like to get together for it.

The play is about a theatre company performing a farce who find that farce elements start leaking into their lives. The movie version is very funny, and I've been told that a live production is likely to be twice as funny as the movie.

Enthusiastic review. Another enthusiastic review.

obviously cannot speak to the quality of the production you'll be seeing, but I can assure you that if the cast has the timing down well, the play smashes the movie to bits.

prepare for an ache in your belly from laughing.

This. Play, live, is WAY better than the movie. Largely because the movie screws up the pacing with things like exterior shots.

Movie is still good! Very funny. Just.... not as funny as the play.

Especially if you've never seen it before, the play is truly funny. I laughed more the first time I saw it than at anything else I've ever seen.

Subsequent viewings have generated less laughter but more admiration at the ingenuity of the thing.

I know people who saw the movie first who think that's funnier than the play. So it may be a "first time is best" thing. But from the reviews this sounds like a particularly good production. Wish I were there.

I really enjoyed both the movie and the play. Have a great time!

Terri and I saw this play in Clermont a couple of years ago. It was quite amusing.
