Synopsis:
In this collection, stage and screen legends including Judi Dench, Ian Holm, Deborah Kerr, Paul Scofield, High Laurie, Penelope Keith, Joan Collins and more bring to life some of the most entertaining and inventive plays and stories ever written. Noel 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 heydey, and his work continues to charm audiences today with its urbane wit, sly humour and distinctive style.
The exceptional productions in this set include many of Coward's best known works such as Hay Fever, Private Lives and Design for Living, and the bonus features offer historic interviews with Coward plus archive audio recordings of an additional six plays produced for radio. Put together, this collection is a quientessential part of any theatre lover's library.
