We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
Nigel Havers and Patricia Hodge star in a sparkling new production of Noel Coward’s immortal comedy of bad manners in the parts originally played by Coward himself and Gertrude Lawrence in the play’s 1930 premiere. Ex-spouses Elyot and Amanda are honeymooning with their new partners in the South of France only to find themselves, to their horror, in adjacent hotel rooms. As their passion rekindles, they decide to elope to Amanda’s flat in Paris only to resume the vicious slanging match that drove them apart in the first place.
Timeless in its witty dissection of sex, marriage and monogamy, Coward’s masterpiece – staged now to mark the 50th anniversary of his death in 1973 - continues to dazzle audiences throughout the world.
Gossip! Don't mess with Her Majesty Helen Mirren!
On Saturday night an enraged Helen Mirren told off noisy revellers outside the Gielgud Theatre whilst dressed in full Elizabeth II regalia. According to eye-witnesses drumming noises from the street outside the venue had become impossible to ignore by the end of the first act of The Audience, in which Mirren is currently starring as Queen Elizabeth.
