Noël Coward wrote his 1933 comedy as a star vehicle for himself and the glamorous acting couple Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt.
Three acts, three lovers, three cities - Paris, London and New York, the essence of each captured by designer Lez Brotherston's interiors - adds up to an irresistibly satisfying construction. In Anthony Page's production, Tom Burke, Andrew Scott and Lisa Dillon sparkle as the three points in a love triangle. But the performances would have more brightly had Page darkened the mood.
