There’s going to be some new faces in the West End cast of Noises Off, as Sarah Hadland (Miranda, Horrible Histories), Richard Henders (Company, The White Guard), Lisa McGrillis (Mum, This House), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard, Wild Bill) and Adrian Richards (The Actor’s Nightmare, Edenare joining the show for its upcoming West End transfer.

Sarah will play Belinda Blair, who’s starring as the fabulous Flavia Brent, Richard takes on the role of Frederick Fellowes, who’s on the run from the Inland Revenue in the role of Philip Brent. Lisa plays Brooke Ashton, demonstrating an unwavering commitment to the role of Vicki, Anjli plays long-suffering Stage Manager Poppy Norton Taylor and Adrian Richards plays master of the screwdriver Tim Allgood, desperately trying to keep the curtain up.

They will join the previously announced Meera Syal, Lloyd Owen, Daniel Rigby and Simon Rouse, who were all in the previous production at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre.

Following a phenomenally successful extended run, rehearsals are now underway for the West End transfer of Michael Frayn’s side-splitting backstage comedy, as the company join the playwright in celebrating his 86th birthday on 8 September.

After watching from the wings a production of his 1970 farce The Two of Us with Richard Briers and Lynn Redgrave, also at the Garrick Theatre, and noting that the goings-on behind the scenes were funnier than out front, Michael Frayn wrote Noises Off. With technical brilliance and split-second timing, the show takes us behind the scenes with a company of actors touring their tatty production of Nothing On, in a hilarious and heartfelt tribute to the unpredictability of life in the theatre.

Hailed as one of the funniest plays of all time, this rip-roaring production, directed by Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons, This House, Wolf Hall), is playing a strictly limited West End season at the Garrick Theatre from 27th September 2019 to 4th January 2020.
