It’s a revival of the Sheridan Morley hit play

Witty musical comedy, Noel and Gertie, is making it’s way to Dartford.

The show is based on the legendary friendship and collaboration of actor, playwright and songwriter Noel Coward and the actress Gertie.

A major revival of Sheridan Morley’s hit play that originally ran in the West End for nine years, it is crafted from diaries and letters between a pair who epitomised an era of sophistication and elegance.

Featuring songs, sketches and snippets of scenes the production has the entrancing effect of accurately portraying the relationship of this extraordinary duo, inseparable until Gertrude’s premature death of cancer, which left a large void in ‘the Master’s’ life.

Matthew Townshend’s production company MTP is the creative drive behind this version of the hit show, which was first seen in 1985.

His production featured as part of Frinton Summer Theatre’s 2014 75th Anniversary season and met with rave reviews.

With minute attention to detail, it takes a perfectly orchestrated trip down memory lane and features scenes from Private Lives, Tonight at 8.30 (including Red Peppers and Still Life) and Blithe Spirit.

These are offset with songs: Mrs. Worthington, Dance Little Lady, Sail Away and, of course, I’ll See You Again.

The will be at Dartford’s Orchard Theatre on March 28.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
