Notes

First editions, first impressions. The Rat Trap retains its dust jacket, rare thus. It was one of Coward's earliest plays, written when he was 18 but was not performed until 18 October 1926 at Everyman Theatre. Hay Fever was first performed 8 June 1925 at Ambassador's Theatre. The Queen was in the Parlour appears here in its first paperback edition and was first performed 24 August 1926 at St Martin's Theatre.
