TACT invites you to the Concert Benefit Performance of Sir Noel Coward’s
In its AMERICAN PREMIERE
Monday, May 14th
at IRISH REPERTORY THEATRE
132 West 22nd Street, NYC
(General Seating - first come first served).
GLITTERING! GAY! SCANDALOUS!
Set in the lobby, restaurants, and bar of the Hôtel Ritz in Paris, SEMI MONDE, by Nöel Coward, follows the lives and loves of a dizzying array of aristocrats, socialites and wannabes over a three year period from 1924 to 1926. Because of the salacious nature of its contents, the play was never produced in its time and has never before been seen anywhere in the US!
Special Thanks to the Noel Coward Foundation for their generous support of this project.
Directed by SCOTT ALAN EVANS

“Only in Semi-Monde does Coward find a successful metaphor for the sexual complications that lie behind his posturing. Semi-Monde is easily the most visually daring of this comedies, and the most intellectually startling … made up of sexually mischievous tableau viands it gets much nearer the homosexual knuckle that Coward’s public image allowed.”
John Lahr, London Review of Books
