The Theatre Royal Bath production will begin performances at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from the 27th September 2023.
It has been announced that Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey, Rain Man, Pride) will star as Garry Lejeune and Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders, The Tower, Sweet Charity) will star as Belinda Blair in the upcoming West End run of 40th anniversary production of Michael Frayn’s Noises Off directed by Lindsay Posner (God of Carnage, Hay Fever, Stones in his Pockets).
they will join the previously announced Felicity Kendal (The Good Life, Relatively Speaking, Hay Fever) as Dotty Otley, Jonathan Coy (Anatomy of a Scandal, Relatively Speaking, Ink) as Frederick Fellowes and Alexander Hanson (Killing Eve, Follies, 42nd Street) as Lloyd Dallas.

Further casting has yet to be announced.
Hurtling along at breakneck speed, Noises Off follows the on and offstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On. From the shambolic final rehearsals before the opening night in Weston-Super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-Under-Lyme seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.
