Description
Noël Coward is the definitive playwright of the early 20th century, contributing a robust repertoire of brilliant material. Playwright, actor, composer, and irrepressible socialite, Coward charmed high society in both London and New York during his heyday, and his work continues to charm audiences today with its urbane wit, sly humor and distinctive style.
