MAK­ING A NOISE FOR LAUGHS

FUN IN FARCE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Local Focus -

IT was a case of ‘Best of Bri­tish’ for lo­cal com­edy gang Se­rial Pro­duc­tions in choos­ing their latest play, Noises Off.

The com­edy, writ­ten by Tony-award win­ning play­wright Michael Frayn, cen­tres around a bunch of mis­fits at­tempt­ing to per­form a fifth-rate farce called Noth­ing On.

The play has been staged on Broad­way and the West End and was made into a hit movie in 1992 star­ring Michael Caine and Christo­pher Reeve.

Se­rial Pro­duc­tions has as­sem­bled a tal­ented cast of Perth ac­tors un­der the di­rec­tion of Joe Isaia, vet­eran award-win­ning di­rec­tor and ac­tor in the Perth com­mu­nity theatre scene.

The­atre­go­ers may re­call some of Se­rial Pro­duc­tions’ pre­vi­ous for­ays into the world of com­edy such as Open All Hours and per­for­mances of the pop­u­lar Rowan Atkin­son comedies, the Black­ad­der se­ries.

Part-pro­ceeds from the per­for­mances go to the Heart and Lung Trans­plant Foun­da­tion.

Se­rial Pro­duc­tions will per­form their latest com­edy Nois­esOff at the Old Mill Theatre in Au­gust.
