Coward’s tribute to theatre is set in The Wings, a retirement home for actresses. A home full of former stars. Jealousies abound, especially between Lotta and another who was also married to her former husband. A tragedy brings them to their senses and a new solarium brings out everyone’s good nature. What is not to like about this quirky Coward play, and so close to Christmas!
