Book Description:
The first single edition of Noel Coward's most controversial play.'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 his comedies, and the most intellectually startling made up of sexually mischievous tableaux vivants and gets much nearer the homosexual knuckle than Coward's public image allowed.' (John Lahr, London Review of Books)Written in 1926 and originally entitled Ritz Bar, Semi Monde was considered too daring for its time: 'its production in London or New York seemed unlikely as some of the characters, owing to lightly suggested abnormalities, would certainly be deleted by the censor' (Noel Coward, Present Indicative). The play finally received its public premiere only after Coward's death, at the Citizen's Theatre, Glasgow, in September 1977.
