About Noël Coward in brief
Sir Noël Peirce Coward was an English playwright, composer, director, actor and singer. He was known for his wit, flamboyance, and what Time magazine called \”a sense of personal style, a combination of cheek and chic, pose and poise\”. Coward’s stage and film acting and directing career spanned six decades, during which he starred in many of his own works, as well as those of others. He did not publicly acknowledge his homosexuality, but it was discussed candidly after his death by biographers including Graham Payn, his long-time partner. Coward won an Academy Honorary Award in 1943 for his naval film drama In Which We Serve and was knighted in 1969. His plays and songs achieved new popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, and his work and style continue to influence popular culture. He composed hundreds of songs, in addition to well over a dozen musical theatre works, screenplays, poetry, several volumes of short stories, and a three-volume autobiography. The former Albery Theatre in London was renamed the NoëL Coward Theatre in his honour in 2006. He died in London on November 25, 1998. He is buried in Kensal Rise, London, with his wife and three children, Violet Agnes Coward, who died in 2005, and their two sons, Arthur Sabin Coward and Henry Gordon Coward.
