Noel Coward was one of the most prominent actors and playwrights of the 1930s, who amused the audience with his wit and satire, for nearly four decades. A born star, he was capable of writing successful and hit plays in just a few days, owing to his immense prodigious talent. His command over playwriting could supersede even the most qualified playwrights of his time. Known as ‘The Master’ among his friends and colleagues, he had truly mastered the art of writing plays and songs. He was very popular both in Britain and the U.S. and was particularly liked for his sense of dressing. In fact, he is credited for introducing the turtle necks into fashion in the 1920s! Despite his sophistication, he was down-to-earth and was famous for his generosity. Essentially, one of the early ‘pop stars’ from Britain, he was distinguished for his ‘cool’ demeanor, which reflected in his plays, most which were comedies. He rose to prominence in the inter-war years, entertaining the world, in the worst of times. However, his career was a bit overshadowed with the emergence of the ‘angry young man’ generation, fuelled by the plays of young and aggressive playwrights, like John Osborne. But, it was just a matter of time before he sprung back to the limelight with a new set of plays written from a different perspective.
