London’s Go People present Noël Coward in the Afternoon

London’s Go People present Noël Coward in the Afternoon:
Ways & Means and Hands Across the Sea

FREE Admission – Donations Encouraged

Founded by British actors Lucy Eaton, Melanie Fullbrook, and Freddie Hutchins, Go People is a professional theatre company specializing in first-class, truly intimate theatre. London credits include: the UK premiere of Almost, Maine (Park Theatre); Win/Lose/Draw (Waterloo East Theatre); The Provoked Wife (London tour); A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Southwark Playhouse), and Bell, Book, and Candle in the galleries of Southampton Arts Center last summer. In addition, they take their expertise in intimate theatre to the extreme, running a Private Theatre business in which classic British plays are performed in a host’s own space. Go People’s patrons include Michael Attenborough, Eve Best, and Niamh Cusack.

Ways and Means by Noël Coward (45 mins)
A fabulous light comedy set on the French Riviera in the 1930’s. Heiress Stella and her gambling husband Toby find themselves plagued by debt and embarrassment while staying with friends at their holiday villa. On the verge of outstaying the welcome completely and having their
reputations destroyed, a scandalous chauffeur attempts to rob the bickering couple, but instead ends up saving their honour.
This is Coward at his glittering best: deliciously funny and full of zinging one-liners!

Hands Across the Sea by Noël Coward (25 mins)
It’s 1935 and Lady Maureen Gilpin has just returned from a world tour of the British Territories. The phone is ringing off the hook and friends are expected to dinner, but not before a couple from Lady Gilpin’s travels call in unexpectedly for a visit. The only trouble is, Lady Gilpin is damned if she can remember who they are, or where in the world she met them…
A gorgeously affectionate comedy of manners set among the British classes.
