Tynemouth Priory Theatre

Star Quality Written by by Noel Coward 11th - 16th June 2018

In his wickedly funny `forgotten` final play, Noël Coward takes us behind the red-curtain glamour of a new West End production in 1951. Conjuring up an authentic backstage world of talent and treachery, Coward creates a gallery of unforgettable characters including, jaded old troupers, and a temperamental leading lady and her director engaging in a battle of egos which will make or break the production – and possibly the rest of the cast.  Caught somewhere between them all, an innocent young playwright. From tentative first rehearsal to opening night, the clash of egos becomes increasingly and hilariously bloody.  Bursting with Coward charm, what emerges from the mayhem of wit, hissy fits and fisticuffs is proof that Star Quality will always triumph... This new adaptation premiered in the West End in 2001
