Tonight at 8:30

October 20 – December 23, 2007

Written by: Noël Coward
Directed by: William Ludel, Michael Murray, Stephanie Shroyer, Stefan Novinski, Robert Goldsby, Brendon Fox

Written as a vehicle for Coward’s own acting talents alongside his frequent stage partner Gertrude Lawrence, Tonight at 8:30 is Coward’s ambitious series of ten one-act plays which saw him breathe new life into the one-act form. First performed in London in 1936, the plays perfectly showcase Coward’s talents as a playwright, providing a sparkling, fast-paced and remarkably varied selection of theatrical gem.
