Stéphane Drolet and Sylvain Huard work on computer models for the set design of Noises Off.

Build it and they will come. That’s what the Quebec Art Company is wagering with opening night around the corner for its production of the legendary farce Noises Off.

The “it” being built is a stage set that is not only a two-storey mock-up of a Victorian mansion, it also revolves – yes, on wheels – to reveal the frantic backstage action of a theatre production.
