Project Shaw: I'll Leave it to You

Gingold Ill Leave It To You 121619

Description

I'll Leave It to You was Noel Coward’s very first play and we’re presenting it on The Master’s 120th birthday!

Left a widow with five grown up children, Mrs. Dermot turns to brother Dan for help. Uncle Dan arrives to find an idle family ready to live on his money. He announces that he is doomed to die in three years and that he will leave his money to the member of the family who has made good by then. Each sets to with such determination that Oliver becomes a successful inventor, Evangeline a novelist, Bobbie a composer and Sylvia a film star; even Joyce, finishing her school career, distinguishes herself. Now he tells the family his riches are a myth and his previous announcement was only a means to raise the family from lethargy. Sylvia alone sees Uncle Dan's wisdom and berates the others for their narrow minded attitude. At heart, they are all genuinely attached to the wily uncle.

THIS EVENT WILL INCLUDE A SPECIAL PREMIUM HOLIDAY PARTY AFTER THE EVENT IN BAR THALIA!
