Ten of the best plays within plays

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best plays within plays.

One entry on the list:
Noises Off by Michael Frayn

The real drama takes place behind the scenes during the performance of a dreadful farce call Nothing On by Robin Housemonger. The three acts each feature the first act of this play: in rehearsal, at a matinée performance, and then near the end of its run. In the last act everything gloriously falls apart.
