Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    Story

    Having not seen or read this play before, I loved it.

    And for my money $5.00 is not too high a price. I will now be looking out for a live performance and I do expect it will be an amateur theatre group who puts it on.

    First performed in the US in 1933.
    It does evoke the 1930's and I imagine it would be great fun and a challenge to perform well.

    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.

  • "The Greatest !"

    17 of 18 helpful votes

    Possibly the funniest series ever!
    John Cleese, Connie Booth, Prunella Scales et al.
    Cleese wrote the first 6 shows with Booth (his then wife......who, by the by, is American.) The series was so popular that BBC begged for 6 more episodes. Cleese and Booth (now divorced) got together and brought us 6 more gems of comic genius.
    The Major, Manuel ( who narrates the series in letters to his Mom ), Chef......they are all here! To my surprise I found that I enjoyed the audio version more than the televised show.
    If you are serious about funny, you will get the whole series post haste!
    I already have these. You lucky Audible Listeners!

    Inspired nonsense and pointless revelry, it's time for another helping of the antidote to panel games, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. In this ninth collection, the gang returns for further moments of mayhem, puns, and one-liners; not forgetting a healthy dose of innuendo and double entendre.

    The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice, and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer. It allows nothing inside unless it makes you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go 'Hmm'. Secondly, it is almost completely empty. Fortunately, helping to fill its vacant plinths is a gathering of the world's most original minds.

Like plenty before her, social worker Clare Barker has entered a caring profession so that she can sort out other people's problems rather than deal with her own. A control freak, she is entirely lacking in self-awareness, making her encounters with colleagues, family, and her partner, Brian, wonderfully entertaining and richly comic.

Something more troublesome than brambles is lurking among the roses. Havoc ensues among the flora and fauna, as this cynical masterpiece makes its way to a hilarious conclusion.
