A Cup of Coward


After the sell-out success of Next Stage’s first Taster Theatre in February, the company is delighted to announce: A Cup of Coward. This sparkling summertime entertainment celebrates the life and works of one of the 20th Century’s most charismatic British playwrights: Sir Noel Coward, who has indeed: “a talent to amuse”.

A celebrated actor, singer, composer and playwright, Coward published over 50 plays from his early teens onwards. His crisp and sophisticated scripts contain wit and bon mots aplenty, scintillating dialogue and laconic humour. On offer in A Cup of Coward are acclaimed Next Stage actors performing extracts from two of Coward’s most popular productions: Hay Fever and Private Lives, whilst your MC for the night will provide an overview of The Master’s extraordinary life and talent.

This delicious cocktail of humour and Coward classics will be served in the intimate Theatre Upstairs, and will be accompanied by a mouth-watering Taster Menu of vegetarian dishes from our Green Room Bistro. We are expecting A Cup of Coward to be very popular – February’s Taster Theatre, A Bite With Bennett, sold out within two weeks – so please don’t hesitate to book yourself a table for this feast of entertainment.
