Bedroom Farces - We Were Dancing/Ways and Means/Shadow Play archive" I knew marrying you was a mistake seven years ago - but I never realised the thoroughness of the mistake until now." Affairs of the heart, the bed, and the chequebook are wittily and touchingly captured in this trio of plays, containing some of Coward's most popular music. We Were Dancing, a comedy featuring Coward's song of the same title, is set on an idyllic island, where the guests of a country club are enmeshed a complex web of extra-marital affairs. Ways and Means is a comedy about the bohemian Stella and Toby, who go from villa to villa on the C?te d'Azur. But when they cannot pay their gambling debts, they plan to make an easy fortune... Shadow Play is a ?musical fantasy'. Peppered with songs and dances including ?Play, Orchestra, Play', it is a moving portrait of a marriage under strain. Noel Coward's dazzling versatility shines across nine one-act plays. From the railway station of Still Life to the Pacific island of We Were Dancing; from the music-hall of Red Peppers to the ache of The Astonished Heart, this is the first complete London revival since 1936. We have arranged the nine plays into three trios, called Nuclear Families, Bedroom Farces, and Secret Hearts. Each trio stands alone, but we hope you see all three! On Saturdays and Sundays, you can see the entire cycle across a single day, with breaks for lunch and dinner.
