The show, Noel and Gertie, is crafted from diaries and letters between Noel Coward and his stage partner, Gertrude Lawrence. It is a witty and mov- ing show telling the story of the professional and personal relationship between two great stage personalities who epito- mised an era of high style and elegance. Its protagonists are played by well known actors Sarah Somerville and Robert Tripe who encourage punters to dress up in the 1930s theme of the show. They will be supported by musical director Nick Forbes on the piano. Sir Noel Peirce Cow- ard (1899-1973) was a playwright, composer, director, actor and singer, known for his wit, flamboyance and what Time magazine called a sense of per- sonal style, a combin- ation of cheek and chic, pose and poise''. Some say he invented the concept of English- ness for the 20th cen- tury. Artworks Theatre's Dee Austring says: "The songs, sketches and snip- pets of scenes from his work pieced together in Noel and Gertie have the entrancing effect of accu- rately portraying this remarkable duo and the era they helped to define. Revel in the much-loved songs, including Mrs Worthington and Some- day I'll Find You." Dress like a pirate Ahoy there: Dress up like a pirate and join storyteller Tanya Batt at the library today at 3pm. Landlubbers have the chance to tog up pirate- style and head to the library at Artworks today at 3pm to practise their pirate speak. International storyteller Tanya Batt will be at the library for songs, story and pirate talk. The event will celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19.
