"a good deal of seasonal fun"

- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune


From iconic English playwright Sir Noël Coward, known for his wit, flair, and unique combination of "cheek and chic."


Featuring Artistic Associate Annabel Armour
and Ensemble Members Emjoy Gavino and Eliza Stoughton


Before Julia and Jane married their comfortable husbands - there was Maurice. An elegant Frenchman and youthful indiscretion for them both, he has written to announce his impending return. Their blissfully ignorant husbands embark on a weekend of golf, leaving the door open to revelry and rivalry. Noël Coward's celebrated wit sparkles in this risqué stylish sex farce that captures the hedonistic spirit of the Roaring Twenties.
