Act One of this hilarious comedy provides covert access to the inner workings of a theatre company, only hours before the opening of a new British farce entitled "NOTHING ON." The company labors through a painful final dress rehearsal complete with dropped lines, missing entrances, problems with props, and technical difficulties—all punctuated by the troupe’s struggle to collaborate amidst fraying relationships. After a passage of time and successful launch (despite it all) Act Two takes us backstage as the play runs for an audience. We witness the impact of deteriorating relationships and the disorder that follows from behind the scenes, as the company tries to save the play from total collapse. Act Three reveals yet another leap forward in time and place as we return to watch NOTHING ON from the audience’s perspective. The downward spiral continues with a chaotic frenzy that tests the limits of the old adage “the show must go on”… but will the company survive?! Don’t miss this award-winning crowd pleaser, called “the funniest farce ever written.”
