Book Description

This first volume in the Coward Collection contains four plays written within a two year period when Coward and the century were still in their 20s. The volume is introduced by Sheridan Morley, Cowards first biographer.

""Hay Fever,"" a comedy of bad manners, concerns a weekend with friends of the Bliss family, who have all been invited independently for a weekend at their country house near Maidenhead. ""The Vortex ""was a controversial drama in its time, introducing drug-addiction onto the stage at a time when alcoholism was barely mentioned. ""Fallen Angels,"" which is written for two star actresses was described as degenerate, vile, obscene, shocking - the second half of the play is entirely taken up with an alcoholic duologue between the two women. ""Easy Virtue"" is an elegant, laconic tribute to a lost world of drawing-room dramas, no other writer went more directly to the jugular of that moralistic, tight-lipped but fundamentally hypocritical 20s society.
