Beschreibung

Beschreibung

Written in 1926 and originally entitled Ritz Bar, Semi-Monde was considered too daring for its time. A visually daring comedy that provides a metaphor for Coward's own sexuality.

Portrait

Noel Coward (1899-1973) was not only an important British playwright and lyricist but he also wrote fiction, three volumes of autobiography, and numerous reflections in other genres which number well over 100 different works. He was also a distinguished actor and cabaret performer. He was easily one of this century's greatest wits.

Pressestimmen

"'Only in Semi-Monde does Coward find a successful metaphor for the sexual complications that lie behind his posturing. Semi-Monde is easily the most visually daring of his comedies, and the most intellectually startling... Semi-Monde is made up of sexually mischievous tableaux vivants and gets much nearer the homosexual knuckle than Coward's public image allowed.' John Lahr, London Review of Books"
