Katherine Kingsley has joined the 40th-anniversary production of Michael Frayn’s Noises Off at London’s Phoenix Theatre until 11 March 2023.
Three-time Olivier Award-nominated actress Katherine Kingsley (Piaf, Singin’ In the Rain, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) joins the cast of hit comedy Noises Off playing Belinda Blair at London’s Phoenix Theatre from 13 February 2023. She takes over the role from Tracey-Ann Oberman whose final performance in Noises Off will be on Saturday 11 February before opening in her own production of The Merchant of Venice 1936, later this month.
Kingsley joins Felicity Kendal as Dotty Otley, Jonathan Coy as Fredrick Fellows, Matthew Kelly as Selsdon Mowbray, Alexander Hanson as Lloyd Dallas, Joseph Millson as Garry Lejeune, Sasha Frost as Brooke Ashton, Hubert Burton as Tim Allgood and Pepter Lunkuse as Poppy Norton-Taylor.
One of the greatest British comedies ever written, Michael Frayn’s celebrated play serves up a riotous double bill – a play within a play. Hurtling along at breakneck speed, Noises Off follows the on and off-stage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On. From the shambolic final rehearsals before opening night in Weston-super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-Under-Lyme seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, before we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.
Noises Off is written by Michael Frayn. The creative team for this 40th Anniversary production includes Lindsay Posner (Director), Simon Higlett (Designer), Paul Pyant (Lighting Designer), Greg Clarke (Sound Designer), Will Stuart (Composer), Ruth Cooper-Brown (Movement and Fight Director), George Jibson (Associate Director), Ginny Schiller (Casting Director).
