About the Author

Noël Coward (1899-1973) is well known for his comedies such as Blithe Spirit and Private Lives, both performed at former venues of the Keller Theatre. The current play was written in 1965 as part of A Suite in Three Keys, all three pieces set in the same hotel and with the same waiter.
Noël Coward played Hugo in the 1966 London production. It was to be one of his last roles.


This bittersweet comedy is the story of a cosmopolitan author, Hugo, caught in his declining years between two women, one being his wife of twenty years, the other, one of his former loves. The former flame, Carlotta, produces some old love letters which she is about to turn over to a biographer. Hugo is dead set against it, for it would compromise his reputation. Carlotta then plays her trump card, which is even more threatening.
