The Wit and Songs of Noel Coward
Pianist and entertainer, Peter Gill presents a tribute to the wit and song-writing skill of that most English of Englishmen, Noel Coward, who said of himself I am an enormously talented man and there is no point in denying it. Born in 1899, Coward was an actor, writer, composer, director, producer, and in later life painter– and he excelled at them all. Peter will remind us of his dazzling wit and perform such gems as A Bar on The Piccola Marina, Don’t Let’s Be Beastly To The Germans, Mrs Worthington, There Are Bad Times Just Around The Corner and Mad Dogs & Englishmen.
"The music and stories were both superbly done and everyone really
enjoyed themselves." - The Holsworthy Theatre
"A splendid evening's entertainment" - The Noel Coward Society
