Coward''s ''forgotten'' play, published to tie in with its world premiere. In his wickedly funny final play, NöeI Coward takes us behind the scenes of a new West End production. Conjuring up an authentic backstage world of talent and treachery, Coward creates a gallery of unforgettable characters; temperamental leading lady, ruthless director, jaded old troupers and, caught somewhere between them all, innocent young playwright. From tentative first rehearsal to triumphant opening night, the clash of egos becomes increasingly and hilariously bloody. But what emerges from the mayhem is a startling evocation of that most elusive gift of all - star quality. This edition, adapted by Chris Luscombe and introduced by Sheridan Morley, is published to coincide with the play''s West End premiere in October 2001.
