'Bedroom Farces'

I knew marrying you was a mistake seven years ago – but I never realised the thoroughness of the mistake until now.

We Were Dancing
The comedy featuring Coward’s song of the same title is set on an idyllic island, where the guests of a country club are enmeshed a complex web of extra-marital affairs.

Ways and Means
The bohemian Stella and Toby go from villa to villa on the Côte d’Azur. But when they cannot pay their gambling debts, they plan to make an easy fortune…

Shadow Play 
A ‘musical fantasy’ peppered with songs and dances including Play, Orchestra, Play, and a moving portrait of a marriage under strain.

Three of the nine short plays which make up Coward's Tonight At 8.30, which is presented as a repertory programme comprising three shows. Check the theatre's site for specific dates and times.

“Bednardczyk shines even with smaller parts... Foster gives a captivating performance.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)

“It is possible to see all nine plays in a single day, a marathon... that is highly recommended.”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“Crowe: heart-wrenchingly innocent but also very funny indeed... Ashe, another glorious comedienne, is furiously snappish.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Crowe consistently stands out playing a collection of women who... almost always get the last laugh. ”

Rosemary Waugh (The Stage)

“The dancing and singing are not this production's strongest suit... Shadow Play therefore feels disappointingly clunky.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“We Were Dancing is a wry, gossamer depiction of love at first sight... Ways and Means: Deliciously funny.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)
