Design For Living

English Touring Theatre

With its smart sophistication, technical accomplishment and convention defying morality, Noel Coward’s classic comedy captured the public imagination of its day.
Embedded in 1930’s Society, Leo, Otto and Gilda dare to livea new ‘design for living’. Plagued by their successes, they lust for happiness and struggle to free themselves from conventions of society. A hothouse of scintillating comedy and disreputable manners, where Coward’s threesome can’t live with each other, yet can’t live without.
Coward’s biting satirical humour and gift for witty diologue make his tale of a successful menage a trois as appealing today as when it was first performed.
