An entertainment devised by Sheridan Morley with the words and music of Noël Coward
Noël Coward and Gertrude Lawrence formed a legendary on and off stage partnership. Noël Coward had a polished witticism for every occasion. Known by many as a playwright and composer, he was also an actor, director, producer, screenwriter, novelist, poet, cabaret artist, a skilful celebrity and a warm and enduring friend.
Gertrude Lawrence was a celebrated actress who triumphed on stage in the world premiere productions of Lady in the Dark and The King and I.
Noël and Gertie is an entertainment crafted from diaries and letters between Coward and Lawrence featuring songs, sketches and scenes from his best loved works. It reminds us that Coward’s talent wasn’t simply to amuse, but also to hold a mirror up to the frailty of the human condition.
“A light, sophisticated entertainment which is sparkling, brilliant and beguiling.”
