One of the most distinguished writers and performers of the 20th Century, Noël Coward’s nuanced, intelligent style catapulted him to stardom.
Penning many esteemed plays and films, such as Brief Encounter (based on his play Still Life), Blithe Spirit and Private Lives, and a plethora of comedic songs, he was also a star on Broadway.
His inspirational story is told in his own words and music, and unique home movies, featuring an entourage of his esteemed contemporaries - including Laurence Olivier, Lauren Bacall and Harold Pinter.
