Family Album (1971)

Family Album

A play by Noel Coward, performed at the Leeds Playhouse (opened 8 September 1971).


Family Album is a short comedy with music.

In 1860, the well-to-do Featherways assemble for the reading of their father's will.  Respect for the deceased gives way to criticism of his life and character in this study of Victorian hypocrisy.
