by Noel Coward
24 September - 3 October 2015
This is a comedy in the finest tradition of Noel Coward, full of witty one-liners and acid put-downs. Set in the 1930s the story revolves around Garry Essendine, a theatrical star with an ego the size of Drury Lane who attracts a succession of passionate debutantes and dotty playwrights like moths to a candle. Dealing with them, and the predatory wife of his agent, are his long-suffering secretary and his ex-wife both of whom strive to extricate Garry from his many entanglements.In all, a delightful piece of light-weight theatre, guaranteed to bring a smile to the faces of any audience.
