Noël Coward - Shaw Festival Theatre

Noël Coward

Coward 125 is a two-year celebration of the enduring legacy of Sir Noël Coward (1899-1973).

From humble beginnings, Coward would achieve international recognition for his work as a playwright, composer, director, actor, and singer, as well as for his incomparable wit and effortless style. Coward’s work continues to enthral and delight audiences and, 50 years after his death, his popularity endures with his work constantly staged around the world.

A new biography of Coward, Masquerade by Oliver Soden, and a major film documentary Mad About The Boy, are released in 2023.

The Noël Coward Foundation supports educational and professional development projects across the Arts and continues Coward’s own commitment to charitable work during his lifetime. The Foundation is proud to support a diverse range of outstanding organizations working in theatre, music, playwriting, technical training, academic research and many other areas.
