Called the funniest farce ever written, this play presents a manic menagerie of characters as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a farce called "Nothing On".
Doors slamming, onstage and backstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
Act One is set at the dress rehearsal the night before opening with the cast still fumbling with entrances and exits, missed cues, misspoken lines, and bothersome props, most notably several plates of sardines.
In Act Two, the play is seen from backstage, providing a view that reveals the deteriorating personal relationships among the cast that have led to offstage shenanigans and onstage bedlam.
In Act Three, we see a performance near the end of the ten-week run when personal friction has continued to increase. The actors attempt to cover up a series of mishaps but only compound the problems and draw attention to the bungling performance.
