George Brent and his second wife Cicely are not in love. In fact they have never been particularly in love. So George’s children from his first marriage hatch a plan to rescue him from Cicely and reunite him with their mother, his first wife, on the Italian Riviera.
This early comedy by Noël Coward, written at the age of 21, clearly identified him as a fresh new talent in British theatre, and it sparkles with his characteristic wit and the clash between bourgeois stuffiness and bohemianism of his well known comedies. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy one of Coward’s personal favourites.
This will be accompanied by a performance of Hands Across the Sea, a short farce also written by Noël Coward.
Suitable for ages 11+
