Noel Coward's Tonight at 8.30

23 — 26 July

Noel Coward's Tonight at 8.30 by English Touring Theatre at Hall for Cornwall, Truro. Time 12pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm, 7.30pm & 7.45pm.

From the pen of the inimitable and ever popular Noël Coward comes this exquisite collection of nine one-act plays performed together, three plays per night, for the first time in the UK since Coward starred in them in 1936.

 

From vaudeville to satire, from farce to intricate comedy of manners, from melodrama to romance, these plays span the full, glorious range of Coward’s writing.

Peep through your fingers at the chaotic Red Peppers music-hall show, witness a bankrupt couple use all Ways and Means to scheme their way out of debt, and break your heart along with Laura in the famous Still Life, the original version of the film Brief Encounter.

Performed in trios of three per evening, this is a unique opportunity to see a stellar ensemble cast perform all of these wonderful plays.
