Mad About the Boy: The Noël Coward Story

Book Tix!

Debonair, witty, talented – Noёl Coward was all this and more.

This fascinating documentary tells the remarkable story of the urbane multihyphenate – prolific playwright, songwriter, actor – who became one of the biggest stars of his time all while keeping his sexuality a secret. Narrators Alan Cumming and Rupert Everett chronicle Coward’s rise to fame as well as the twists and turns that followed, including his stint as a secret agent. Featuring archived interviews with the droll raconteur, combined with home movie footage, this is a brilliant overview of a gay legend the likes of which the entertainment industry may never see again.

“A toe-tapplingly infectious documentary … (and) a mesmerising journey into matchless wit and style.” – The Independent
