Noel Coward in Two Keys

Set in the mid -1960s, this Coward work is really a pair of one-act plays “Come into the Garden, Maud” and “A Song at Twilight”.  The action of both takes place in the sitting room of a private suite in a fine, old Swiss hotel. An ‘outsider’ causes uncomfortable and previously unnamed truths to be dealt with.
