JConthecover: Radio Times (1991)
Today its back to 1991, and this issue of UK Radio Times dated 13-19 April. Joan featured on the cover dressed as one of the characters from her new series of Noel Coward Playlets called "Tonight at 8:30" which started that week. Inside was a great 3 page article, "Is This Our Joanie?"
Over 8 weeks Joan would play a different woman in a series of one act plays with her Repertory Company, including a femme fatale, a society hostess, a neurotic wife, good time girl, and spinster.
I will be featuring photos and details of each of these playlets in future posts.
When the series was shown in America, it was called "Collins Meets Coward.
