Noises Off

by Michael Frayn

Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On.

Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.

The Premature Corpse

by Mike Johnson

This masterfully plotted show has so many twists and turns. On the surface, it's a ”love triangle" tale. State's witness Evan Jorris, is under government protection after testifying against the mob. His wife, Francine, along with her lover, contrives to do away with her husband. They are confident that everyone will logically assume that the mob did the deed and never suspect them; however, all is not what it seems.
