Innis College Theatre, 2 Sussex Avenue at St. George, Toronto
Afternoon tea to follow, 4:00 pm, in the Atrium

The brilliant songwriter Noël Coward had a well-deserved reputation for wit, grace and style. He also had an innate gift for composition, which was not in the least inhibited by his lack of formal training. We celebrate his extraordinary ‘talent to amuse’, with a selection of his witty word play, his wistful waltzes, his biting humour and his wry observations of the world.

In the spirit of his time, we invite you to join us after the concert for an elegant English afternoon tea in the lovely Atrium at Innis College.
