Noël Coward Songs & Sketches
Sir Noël Coward (1899-1973) was playwright, composer, director, actor and singer, known for his wit, flamboyance and style. In a career spanning six decades, he published over 30 plays (including Hay Fever, Private Lives and Blythe Spirit). He composed over 100 songs and wrote poetry and short stories. Colin Baldy’s and Gulliver Ralston’s tribute is built on a winning selection of songs and sketches by Coward and his friends. They are a unique double act; their musical skills, combined with comic talent, have captivated audiences far and wide. They have twice performed in Windsor Castle and in many theatres, music clubs and festivals around the UK. Gulliver runs the music programme at Roehampton University. Colin is Artistic Director of City Lit Opera School and the Maldon Festival.
