SUMMARY

Internationally acclaimed star of stage and screen Golden Globe® winner Amanda Donohoe stars as a theatrical grand dame in Noël Coward’s deliciously funny final play, Star Quality. Taking us behind the scenes of a new West End production, Coward conjures up a wickedly observant satire of the backstage world of talent and treachery and a gallery of unforgettable characters. From tentative first rehearsal to triumphant opening night, both leading lady and director are determined to get their own way and the resulting clash of egos becomes increasingly and hilariously bloody.

What emerges from the mayhem of biting wit, hissy fits and fisticuffs is a startling evocation of that most elusive gift of all – star quality.

Adapted by Christopher Luscombe (director of The Madness of George III and The History Boys), Star Quality is a fitting farewell from the master of the stage.

Admission: £12 – £28(£26)
