    Paris, 1920s
  • Overview
    Set in the lobby, restaurants, and bar of an up-scale Paris hotel, the play follows the lives of a variety of socialites over a three year period from 1924 to 1926. It is remarkable among its contemporaries due to its prominent sexuality and homosexuality. This, however, is but the facade of Coward's exploration of the disconnected monotony of the lives of the elite.

    The play was not produced until 1977.
