PDF EBook by Noël Coward
Volume Four of Noë download; l Coward's plays contains a selection of Coward's
plays from the thirties and forties which includes Blithe Spirit, a
comedy that centres around the spirit medium Madame Arcati. Plays 4 PDF EBook The play
that mocks sudden death was produced at precisely the moment when bombs
were bringing it to Britain "I shall ever be grateful, for the almost
psychic gift that enabled me to write Blithe Spirit in five days during
one of the darkest years of the war." The play was for years the
longest- PDFrunning comedy in the history of British theatre. Present
Laughter follows the life of Garry Essendine, a world-weary,
middle-aged projection of the dilettante, debonair persona -
self-obsessed and dressing-gowned who struts through the play like an
educated peacock. It is a comedy about the 'theatricals' that Noël best
knew and loved, and was originally a star vehicle for himself. It is
the closest to an autobiographical play that Coward ever wrote.
Happy Breed is a saga of a lower middle-class family; and three shorter
pieces fromTonight at 8.30 - is a farce set in the South of France,
and serves as an oblique tribute to Frederick Lonsdale; The Astonished
Heart is about the decay of a psychiatrist's mind through personal
sexual obsession. Red Peppers, which closes the volume, was a cynical
tribute to the lost music halls of the First World War.
