By Noël Coward
Directed by Steve Perigard

This exhilarating comedy from Noël Coward has been recognized as one of the world’s most hilarious classics ever since it first dazzled London’s West End in 1925. How does “the other half” live, when “the other half” is a family of four celebrated bon vivants each of whom finds it impossible to share the spotlight? The eccentric Bliss family — including matriarch Judith (a “retired” actress), her husband David (a renowned author), and their two artistic, adult children — has decided to host a “weekend in the country” at their rural estate / artists’ retreat. The unsuspecting guests all become victims in the self-serving shenanigans of the four bohemians as they seek to out-trip each other in the light fantastic. Everything goes blissfully awry in this sparkling and stylish comedy of manners.
