    Oliver Soden: Masquerade – The Lives of Noël Coward

    Monday 30 October, 5.45pm

    Canterbury Cathedral Lodge

    Tickets £14 (Incl. £1.50 booking fee)

    The voice, the dressing-gown, the cigarette in its holder, remain unmistakable. Noël Coward wrote some fifty plays and nine musicals, as well as revues, screenplays, short stories, poetry, and a novel. He was both composer and lyricist for approximately 675 songs. He was at one point the most highly paid author in the world. Yet some of his most striking and daring writing remains unfamiliar. As T.S. Eliot said, in 1954; 'There are things you can learn from Noël Coward that you won't learn from Shakespeare.' Oliver Soden draws back the curtain to reveal The Master, as never seen before.

    Books will be sold at the talks and online by the bookshop at Canterbury Christ Church University. For more information visit
