We are keen to support all of our teachers but would especially like to hear from those who have chosen to deliver one of our lesser-taught texts, such as Private Lives or That Face, as an alternative to the ever popular A Streetcar Named Desire. Of course, there is nothing wrong with Streetcar; it is the most popular play on our AS set text list for a reason, but we would like to encourage variety and challenge. Plus, Private Lives is absolutely hilarious and a real testament to Coward’s quick-fire wit.
The Noël Coward Room, located in the heart of London, provides a wealth of resources for teachers and students studying 20th Century Drama and Literature. It is a rich repository of theatre history, and an informative and illuminating place to explore the range of Noël Coward’s professional and personal worlds.
