Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Closes Season with Classic British Sex Farce Noises Off

Written by

The Debut Season at The Otto M. Budig Theater closes with this raucously funny play-within-a-play that stuffs two outrageous farces into one production.

CINCINNATI, May 3, 2018 – Cincinnati Shakespeare Company closes their Debut Season at The Otto M. Budig Theater with Noises Off, by Michael Frayn. The drama onstage is nothing compared to the drama backstage in this hysterical, fast-paced British sex farce about putting on a hysterical, fast-paced British sex farce. Lines, props, and pants are dropped in equal measure as long-suffering director Lloyd (Brian Isaac Phillips) struggles valiantly to keep his company’s production from going totally off the rails, despite fizzling romances, desperate rivalries, and constant befuddlement among the cast.

Noises Off runs May 18 – June 9 with performances on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:00 PM, as well as Saturday June 9 at 2:00 PM. Preview performances are May 16 and 17 at 7:30 PM. On Sundays, May 27 and June 3, bring your younger kids (4+) for artist-led childcare DURING the performance! The “Playdate” program is only $15 and free for subscribers.

The theater is now located at The Otto M. Budig Theater at 1195 Elm Street in OTR, adjacent to Washington Park. Single ticket prices range from $14-$52. Student/Children and Preview tickets are only $28. If available that day, $14 student rush tickets may be purchased thirty minutes before a show with a valid student ID. Discounts are available for students, seniors and groups as well as AAA members. To purchase tickets or for more information, call the CSC Box Office at 513.381.BARD (2273) ext. 1, or go online at www.cincyshakes.com. Valet Parking is now available for every performance!
