In 1970, British playwright Michael Frayn was watching a production of a farce he had written about a dinner party in which two actors played all the roles. He was watching from the wings. Realizing that the comedy was funnier from this perspective, Frayn decided to write a farce set entirely backstage. Thus was born the 1982 classic Noises Off, which follows a series of actors backstage as they perform an awful sex comedy titled Nothing On. Frayn’s comedy was an instant hit.
