Noises Off makes its mark

With an all star cast, including both the Head Boy and Girl, this year’s sixth form production of Noises Off directed by Jay Green, Head of Drama, got off to an outstanding start with a standing ovation on the opening night. The choice of play was a very risky one; being a “play within a play” performed on an incredibly complex set. The actors’ timing had to be immaculate and indeed it was. The audience was promised a laugh almost every 15 seconds and that is what they got, Noises Off definitely made its mark in Bedales production history.
