Publisher's Summary

Three terminally stylish friends, who share rivalrous affections, attempt to uncoil their twisted love triangle in this sexy and scandalous gem. Written in 1932, the play was deemed extremely daring, and even by today's standards is considered controversial. In its frank and funny take on sex, love, and commitment, Design for Living proves to be one of Coward's greatest successes.


Audible Editor Reviews

The play, written in 1932 by the renowned Noel Coward, was considered daring for its time due to its frank and funny take on sex, love, and commitment. This L.A. Theatre Works Audio Theatre production presents the entire play perfectly, with a full cast headed by Claire Forlani, Hamish Linklater, and Douglas Weston. The controversial text becomes even sharper when heard in the crisp, distinct manner of the entire cast. While they are not people you become fond of, these selfish, egomaniacal, and extreme characters do catch your interest in a most engrossing way.
