Coward: a speculative play about the life of Noël Coward

Charlton, James Martin ORCID logoORCID: (2013) Coward: a speculative play about the life of Noël Coward. Playdead Press, London. ISBN 0957679297. [Book]


Coward is James Martin Charlton s new, speculative play about the life of playwright, performer, musician and wit Noël Coward and his relationship with a struggling young actor named Leonard, set in the lively and ostentatious 1930 s. Leonard is star struck and taken in by Noël s signature charm and wit. Lured away from his girlfriend and his faith, Leonard is seduced by the lifestyle Noël promises him. But will Leonard ever become the great actor he always wanted to be, or is the part Noël has in mind for him more amorous than it is theatrical? All the while, events are observed and stage-managed by Noël's personal assistant, Cole Lesley, the epitome of the good and faithful servant.
