THE OLD RED LION PUB THEATRE
LIAM MCLAUGHLIN PRODUCTIONS
Luna’s a dog. A good dog. Nemesis of the big-dick-labradoodle, rabbit hunter, merciless protector of the human pack.
It’s a warm April night and The Noises are everywhere. Luna’s only friend, Ellie, has gone out, but Ma has locked Luna in and she’s getting restless. The night is stretching out and changing shape, strange smells are drifting through the closed door.
Beyond the door, The Noises are getting faster and louder and Luna’s beloved Ellie hasn’t come home.
What does it mean to be brave? What does it mean to be good?
Confined here together in the dark, what else do we have but each other?
A mother and daughter collaboration between TS Eliot Award Shortlisted poet and playwright Jacqueline Saphra and director-dramaturg Tamar Saphra, The Noises is a visceral new play about fear, courage, the nature of violence and what we're prepared to do for the ones we love.
Every performance has fully integrated audio description for blind and visually impaired audiences.

“So too the lighting – again without spoiling anything, it is integral to the atmosphere of the play, and is executed expertly.”
“[The] set plays a trick of perspective so that, in combination with Timothy Kelly’s eerie lighting, Luna exists vulnerably in an environment too big for her, created with no consideration for her needs.”
