Written in 1989 but still astonishingly real today, this much performed yet no less loved two-hander set in a local pub waltzes the audience through a spectrum of human emotion, weaving a rich tapestry of life in a working class town through intimate insights into the lives of the Landlord and his wife and the colourful pub regulars.
The famous play that spawned the musical My Fair Lady is Shaw's most popular. It follows the story of Lisa Doolittle, who is gradually transformed from a flower girl to a duchess for a bet by a professor of language, Higgins. Unfortunately Higgins fails to appreciate that she is a human being with feelings, and this leads to many a humorous encounter.
Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring: all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. The play opens with a touring company dress-rehearsing Nothing On, a conventional farce. Mixing mockery and homage, Frayn heaps into this play-within-a-play a hilarious melée of stock characters and situations
