Noel Coward

Published by Methuen

2 Male 3 Female

Coward's wit and precision as a modern dramatist is nowhere better exemplified than in this classic modern play from 1930

Elyot Chase and Amanda Prynne - originally played by Gertrude Lawrence and Noël Coward - divorced from one another five years ago

Now - by coincidence - they arrive at the same French hotel

Both honeymooning with their respective new spouses

Encountering one another by chance, each is at once horrified and fascinated by the other

And they begin a roundelay of quarrels and love intrigues that culminate in their getting back together


"Noel Coward's glittering gem" ~ The Times

"The brilliance of Coward's conceit . . . is as sparkling as it ever was" ~ Jewish Chronicle

"The play is marriage in three parts, but with better jokes and an interval" ~ Time Out
