“Noises Off”

The 2013-2014 season begins with this familiar British comedy farce, directed by C.D. Adamson, PhD. and presented by Gonzaga University Dept. of Theatre & Dance. A charming farce about the play “Nothing On,” which is a purposefully awful farce about romantic relationships. This play-within-a-play is persistently interrupted as 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. Rated PG-13. Purchase tickets at www.gonzaga.edu/theatreanddance or by calling. Show times are Oct. 25 at 8:30 p.m., Oct. 26, Nov. 1-2 at 7:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. matinees on Oct. 26 and Nov. 2.
