Secret Hearts - Star Chamber/Red Peppers/Still Life archive"I know that this is the beginning of the end - not the end of my love for you - but the end of our being together." Secret dreams, unfulfilled ambitions and impossible desires: this trio of two plays and one musical comedy has everything from outrageous farce to heartbreaking romance. Star Chamber is a comedy about a charity committee meeting, set in a theatre and peopled by outrageous characters. Red Peppers is a riotous tribute to music-hall. George and Lily Pepper battle with tiny dressing rooms, a grumbling audience, and a drunken pianist. Still Life was later immortalised as Brief Encounter. In a station refreshment room, Laura meets Alec. 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.
