Noises Off, a comic masterpiece, is not one play, but two: the hilariously horrible, British farce Nothing On, and the comedic nightmare that ensues backstage. Slamming doors, flying props, prat falls, sardines, and two-story revolving sets abound as the audience relives the first act of Nothing On three times, each with successively less attention paid to the script, resulting in hysterical comedy both off-stage and on-. The acclaimed farce takes the stage at 7:30 pm at the Ascension Community Theatre, November 7-10 and 14-17; 2 pm matinee on Sundays. 823 North Felicity Avenue. $15–$30. (225) 647-1230 or ascensioncommunitytheatre.org.
