This play has splendid casting opportunities.  Essential to the performance is Gary Essendine, the part which Noel Coward wrote for himself, and who is on stage for just over half the play.  It was originally written for someone in their early 40’s, but Noel went on playing it until he was over 60.
Main supporting parts are Liz, Gary’s discarded wife; Morris, his manager; Henry, his producer; and Joanna, Henry’s wife who are all 30 to 50 (we may need to do a little mix and match on ages here).
Household parts, who are very much in and out of the action are; Monica the austere secretary,30 to 50; Fred the valet, about the same; and Miss Erikson, originally written for a then fashionable Swedish housekeeper, whose age and accent, we will adapt as necessary.
The two younger parts are Daphne, described in the script as a pretty girl of about 23; and Roland, an earnest young man.  Let’s say anything 18 to 28, with a little give or take.
Finally, there is Lady Saltburn, a lovely posh part who won’t see 40 again, but she is only on for 3 or 4 pages.
