by NOËL COWARD directed by TOM LITTLER
I don’t wish to sound fussy, but I really don’t care to discuss false teeth during dinner.
In a luxury Swiss hotel suite in the 1960s, three separate stories unfold:
A Song at Twilight is a full-length play about a famous elderly writer, reputedly based on Somerset Maugham, who faces blackmail at the hands of an ex-lover threatening to expose his secret past.
Shadows of the Evening and Come into the Garden, Maud form a perfect double-bill set in the same hotel suite. Shadows of the Evening explores the intricacies of a late-life love triangle, and Come into the Garden, Maud is a fizzing comedy about the misunderstandings between Americans and Europeans abroad.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Noël Coward’s death and the 125th of his birth in nearby Teddington, this is the first complete revival of Suite in Three Keys for a generation.
OT Artistic Director Tom Littler returns to Coward, following his landmark revival of Tonight at 8.30. Choose between the full-length A Song at Twilight or the double-bill of Shadows of the Evening and Come into the Garden, Maud – or see all three plays in a single day to celebrate the final flourish of Coward’s glittering career.
“A Song at Twilight is a moving coda to Coward’s career” Michael Billington, The Guardian
