Summary

At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs.

His line in harmless, infatuated debutantes is largely tolerated but playing closer to home is not.

Just before he escapes on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanours is discovered. And all hell breaks loose.

Set in the swinging 60s with a soundscape to match – this production brings alive Coward’s play in a whole new way.
