If you would like some background on Noel Coward you can follow this link:
or why not pay a visit to the Noel Coward Society:
First published in 1925 the play is:
A classic comedy is set in the country home of the eccentric Bliss family Judith, a recently retired stage actress, David , a self-absorbed novelist and their two equally bohemian children who all live in their own world where the boundaries between reality and fiction are extremely blurred. Upon entering this domain, their unsuspecting weekend guests an upright diplomat, a shy flapper, an athletic boxer, and a fashionable sophisticate are repeatedly thrown into wildly melodramatic situations by their hosts. The resulting pandemonium is a joy to witness.
