About the Play:

Audience is a one-act comedy by Michael Frayn. From the author of Noises Off, a farcical take on what people are actually thinking and doing when they ought to be watching the play. Sometimes there's just more drama on this side of the curtain than the other…

Audience is a delightful send-up which holds up a mirror to the outlandish behaviour and comedy inherent in every theatre audience. This amusing satire about audiences takes place in the stalls (orchestra) of a West End theatre. The cast includes an usherette, audience members and a playwright in agony over crinkling candy wrappers, talking out loud, and inattention to his play.

Audience was first presented in 1987 at the Lyric Theatre in London. Since then the play has been produced widely by high schools, colleges, and community theatres.

Cast: 7 female and 6 male
