Orange Tree Theatre Artistic Director Tom Littler directs Stephen Boxer , Emma Fielding and Tara Fitzgerald in a rediscovery of Coward’s trilogy.

In a luxury Swiss hotel suite in the 1960’s, three separate stories unfold:

A Song at Twilight is a full-length play about a famous elderly writer, reputedly based on Somerset Maugham, who faces blackmail at the hands of an ex-lover threatening to expose his secret past.

Shadows of the Evening and Come into the Garden, Maud form a perfect double-bill set in the same hotel suite. Shadows of the Evening explores the intricacies of a late-life love triangle, and Come into the Garden, Maud is a fizzing comedy about the misunderstandings between Americans and Europeans abroad.

Suite in Three Keys cast

Marking the 50th anniversary of Noël Coward’s death and the 125th of his birth, this is the first complete revival of Suite in Three Keys for a generation.

Tom Littler is the award-winning Artistic Director of the Orange Tree Theatre, following an acclaimed tenure as Artistic Director of London’s Jermyn Street Theatre. His productions of She Stoops to Conquer and The Circle, recently seen at the Theatre Royal Bath starring Jane Asher, were the best-selling shows in Orange Tree history. His career began at Theatre Royal Bath where he was Associate Director of the Peter Hall Company.

A Song at Twilight is a moving coda to Coward’s career” Michael Billington, The Guardian

“A giant of the theatre” Daily Telegraph on Noël Coward
