Life and love explored in pair of one-act Coward plays

Wivelsfield Little Theatre present Tonight at 7.30, a brief encounter with Noël Coward in the shape of two one-Act plays. A spokesman said: “The two plays are taken from a group of one-act plays written in the 1930s by Coward called Tonight at 8.30. As our curtain-up is a little earlier, we’ve decided to call the evening Tonight at 7.30.

“The first play is called Fumed Oak, a very amusing story about a downtrodden man called Henry Gow and his somewhat overbearing family. A better title for this could be The Worm that Turned. The second play is called Still Life. This is about a couple who meet by chance in a station refreshment room one evening and charts their romance over the course of a year.” Curtain up at 7.30pm on April 18, 19 and 20. Tickets £12 on 01444 471201.
