Michael Frayn’s Noises Off is an excellent fit for Theatre in the Park, which has staged a number of farces with the energy level up to 11 in recent seasons. Frayn’s 1982 hit about the thoroughly inept staging of a play is an open ticket for actors to ham it up, and some inspired performances provide big laughs in the slightly overlong production.
