Went last night to this totally enchanting show about the friendship and working relationship between these two British marvels.

Told by reference to Coward's plays, songs, writings, even telegrams to Gertie, it is informative, funny and full of witty songs.

Ben Stock and Helena Blackman give super performances evoking Coward and Lawrence.

This is my first time at this friendly purpose-built fringe venue; pity there weren't more people there.
If I listed every show I'd seen since 1974 I'd get RSI.

I saw the Saturda matinee of this with @kjb and loved it! Such a wonderful couple of hours transported to another era. Both actors were excellent and the combination of telling their story through song and various extracts from plays was lovely.

Sadly it was not very full, which is such a shame when you can get a ticket for 10. Please go and see it if you can!
