The cast of Noises Off in London's West End has been confirmed.
Following a phenomenally successful extended run at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre, rehearsals have started for the West End transfer of Michael Frayn’s side-splitting backstage comedy, Noises Off.
Noises Off is a play-within-a-play, following the backstage antics of the cast and crew who are staging a touring production of the (fictional) play Nothing On.
Having played all over the world where theatre is done, Noises Off returns to the West End for the fourth time as it heads to the Garrick Theatre from 27th September 2019 to 4th January 2020.
Noises Off cast
The cast will feature BAFTA Television Award nominee Meera Syal as Dotty Otley portraying Mrs Clackett, Lloyd Owen as Nothing On’s director extraordinaire Lloyd Dallas, BAFTA winning Daniel Rigby, as Garry Lejeune, who in turn gives us his best Roger Tramplemain and Simon Rouse is Selsdon Mowbray, who, if he can remember where he is in the script, will play the Burglar.
Joining them will be Sarah Hadland as Belinda Blair, who’s starring as the fabulous Flavia Brent, Richard Henders as Frederick Fellowes. Frederick is on the run from the Inland Revenue in the role of Philip Brent. Lisa McGrillis appears as Brooke Ashton, demonstrating unwavering commitment to the role of Vicki.
Completing the cast are Anjli Mohindra who plays long-suffering Stage Manager Poppy Norton Taylor and Adrian Richards as master of the screwdriver Tim Allgood, desperately trying to keep the curtain up.
Covers are Suzy Bloom, Abby Cassidy, Kieran Gough and Jack Wharrier.
