Noel Coward’s Star Quality Comes to Cambridge

From tentative first rehearsal to triumphant opening night, both leading lady and director are determined to get their own way and the resulting clash of egos becomes increasingly and hilariously bloody. What emerges from the mayhem of biting wit, hissy fits and fisticuffs is a startling evocation of that most elusive gift of all – star quality.

NOEL Coward’s Star Quality , starring Golden Globe winner Amanda Donohoe, comes to the Cambridge Arts Theatre

Taking the audience behind the scenes of a new West End production, Coward conjures up a wickedly observant satire of the backstage world of talent and treachery and a gallery of unforgettable characters: a temperamental leading lady, a ruthless director, jaded old troupers and, caught somewhere between them all, an innocent young playwright.

From tentative first rehearsal to triumphant opening night, both leading lady and director are determined to get their own way and the resulting clash of egos becomes increasingly and hilariously bloody. What emerges from the mayhem of biting wit, hissy fits and fisticuffs is a startling evocation of that most elusive gift of all – star quality.

Donohoe (LA Law, Emmerdale) stars in this adaptation by Christopher Luscombe, whose credits as a director include acclaimed productions of The Madness of George III and The History Boys.
