In this ultimate backstage comedy, Dotty has lost her sardines, Garry has lost coherence, Brooke has lost her contact lens (not to mention her clothes), Freddie has lost his funny bone, Belinda has lost her composure, Selsdon has lost his booze, Tim has lost sleep, Poppy has lost her man, and Lloyd has lost control of the worst sex farce in history. What makes a classic a classic? Find out when Third Rail tackles what is arguably the funniest play ever written.


“Third Rail has pound-for-pound one of the funniest ensembles in town.” –Portland Mercury

“Michael Frayn’s Noises Off, currently performed by Third Rail Repertory Theatre, is the kind of farce that, if done right, can blow you away with helpless laughter and leave you warmed up inside for quite some time. Third Rail core company members and guest performers do just that, creating magic under the careful direction of Scott Yarbrough, as they take this physically complicated comedy and run with it to the finish line without missing a beat.” –The Oregonian
