Read full description of the books:



A famous title resulting not from the play but from the wonderful Lubitsch movie (sc Ben Hecht, who used 2 lines by Coward), it's a provocative work, though not particularly funny. At times, it's even nasty and worse, for Coward, boring. Still, writ for himself and the Lunts, and first performed in 1933, give Coward credit for tackling bisexuality-plus, which ev'one either let pass or chose blinkeredness. Today, it's seldom performed (with good reason: it needs serious cuts and demands glam actors).

Director Anthony Page said, a few years ago, it was about a woman gaining independence. (Bosh) Then, while appearing in a revivial, Vanessa Redgrave belched, "It's about the class struggle." That's when I decided she was working for MI5, but never mind... Gilda & Leo & Otto are all in love w each other and "doing it." Noel got away with it onstage; the sex - central to play - is offstage. His situ is modern, but the long second act requires a few Hail Marys. Or Bloody Marys.

The play ends with the threesome laughing uproariously. Why?? Today, knowing what we do about Noel and the Lunts, I submit that the laughter is all about their personal and successful facades. Art imitates Life.
