Noel Coward was a child when he saw an advertisement in the Daily Mirror calling on "a talented boy of attractive appearance" to act a lead role in a play about fairies called The Goldfish. Coward reasoned: I am "a talented boy, God knows, and, when washed and smarmed down a bit, passably attractive." The plays director, the young boy thought, would be a fool indeed to miss the magnificent opportunity of having him in the cast. He ran to his room to put his acting clothes on and prepare for the auditionand with that same blithe spirit, Coward went on to write some of the funniest, wittiest plays of the twentieth century. Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of Coward and the plays he wrote. Read Coward in an Hour and experience his plays like never before. Know the playwright, love the play!
