"Very entertaining . . . wonderful dialogue with fantastic one-liners . . . stylish and debonair” – Radio NZ

A delicious summer cocktail, with a twist.

“It should be easy, you know. The actual facts are so simple. I love you. You love me. You love Otto. I love Otto. Otto loves you. Otto loves me. There now! Start to unravel from there.”

From bohemian Paris of the 1930's to the dizzying heights of Manhattan society, Gilda (Lisa Chappell), a vivacious interior designer, leads playwright Leo and artist Otto on a merry dance of love, lust and betrayal.

But who loves who the most? And can this trio, tipsy on champagne cocktails and the intoxicating effects of success, find anything resembling happiness?

After 75 years, Coward’s sparkling comedy is as fresh, funny and contemporary as ever.
