The playthat mocks sudden death was produced at precisely the moment when bombswere bringing it to Britain I shall ever be grateful, for the almostpsychic gift that enabled me to write Blithe Spirit in five days duringone of the darkest years of the war.

The play was for years thelongest-running comedy in the history of British theatre. PresentLaughter follows the life of Garry Essendine, a world-weary,middle-aged projection of the dilettante, debonair persona -self-obsessed and dressing-gowned who struts through the play like aneducated peacock. It is a comedy about the theatricals that Noel bestknew and loved, and was originally a star vehicle for himself. It isthe closest to an autobiographical play that Coward ever wrote. ThisHappy Breed is a saga of a lower middle-class family- and three shorterpieces fromTonight at 8.3 0 - is a farce set in the South of France,and serves as an oblique tribute to Frederick Lonsdale- The AstonishedHeart is about the decay of a psychiatrists mind through personalsexual obsession.

Red Peppers, which closes the volume, was a cynicaltribute to the lost music halls of the First World War.
