South Sea Bubble by Noël Coward. One of his less successful works, originally written 1949, produced in its final form in 1956 with a cast that included Vivien Leigh, Ian Hunter, Ronald Lewis, Joyce Carey and Alan Webb. When Leigh left the play after eight performances, Elizabeth Sellars took over from her.
