Casting has been announced for the three new plays making-up the programme for Tomorrow at Noon which will be at Jermyn Street Theatre from 24 April to 15 May in tandem with Tonight at 8.30.

The three plays (all directed by Jermyn Street Theatre's Deputy Director Stella Powell-Jones) are:

Glimpse by Jenny Ayres

The Thing by Emma Harding

Smite by Morna Young.

Each of these works reacts to one of Coward's Tonight at 8.30 plays, and responds to it in a contemporary voice.

Tonight at 8-30 features nine one-act plays from Noël Coward in 3 trilogies:

Bedroom Farces (We Were Dancing, Ways and Means, Shadow Play);

Secret Hearts (Star Chamber, Red Peppers, Still Life);

Nuclear Families (Family Album, Hands Across the Sea, The Astonished Heart)

and plays at Jermyn Street from 10 April to 20 May.

Three new one-act plays reacting to Noël Coward's Tonight at 8.30.

By Jenny Ayres, Emma Harding, and Morna Young.

"She's been coming here every Sunday for the past fifty years and he still hasn't turned up."

The playwrights of these three funny, moving and provocative plays were chosen from 390 entrants to write a contemporary female response to Noel Coward's Tonight at 8.30.

Jenny Ayres' Glimpse is inspired by Coward's Still Life.

It is the story of a woman whose history holds too much for her to leave behind.

In a world that never stops, are we brave enough to wait? What might we glimpse if we miss the train?

Emma Harding's The Thing Itself reacts to Coward's Shadow Play.

When the sun fails to come up one morning, Vic and Simone must face the dark.

But what emerges from the shadows?

Truth or illusion?

Morna Young's Smite is inspired by Coward's The Astonished Heart.

It is a story of buried answers, blind hearts, and life after loss.


Elaine Claxton - Vic (The Thing Itself) & Mags (Glimpse)

Laura Morgan - Hannah (The Thing Itself), Allie (Smite) & Woman (Glimpse)
