“He is simply a phenomenon, and one that is unlikely to occur ever again in theatre history” ―Terence Rattigan
About the Author
Noël Coward was born in 1899 in Teddington, Middlesex. He made his name as a playwright with The Vortex (1924), in which he also appeared. His numerous other successful plays included Fallen Angels (1925), Hay Fever (1925), Private Lives (1933), Design for Living (1933) and Blithe Spirit (1941). During the war he wrote screenplays such as Brief Encounter (1944) and In Which We Serve (1942). In the fifties he began a new career as a cabaret entertainer. He published volumes of verse and a novel (Pomp and Circumstance, 1960), two volumes of autobiography and four volumes of short stories: To Step Aside (1939), Star Quality (1951), Pretty Polly Barlow (1964) and Bon Voyage (1967). He was knighted in 1970 and died three years later in Jamaica.

I purchased them for the play Easy Virtue. This was the worst of the plays. Characters uninteresting,dialogue slow and not very clever.
i had hopes of enjoying the upcoming film but this seems doubtful.
Hayfever and The Vortex are a load of corn. Coward has either faded with his time or he had to be there to read the lines.
