Noel & Gertie
Matthew Townshend Productions is bringing a superb adaptation of Sheridan Morley’s Noel and Gertie to theatres across the country in the new year.
The show, which will be on tour between February and May, chronicles the legendary lifelong friendship of playwright Noel Coward and actress Gertrude Lawrence.
Featuring songs, sketches and scenes from some of Coward’s best works, it pays tribute to two of the best-loved performers of this century while taking a well-orchestrated trip down memory lane.
Scenes from Private Lives, Still Life and Blithe Spirit and snippets of timeless songs such as Dance Little Lady and, of course I’ll See You Again, make it a show which entrances.
The nature of the production allows for an intimate setting which encourages the audience to pick up every smirk, grimace and subtly raised eyebrow.
