The BLITHE SPIRIT Cocktail Contest


Noel Coward with cocktail

No, it doesn't have to be a martini: Coward with cocktail.

“Anybody can write books, but it takes an artist to make a dry martini that’s dry enough.” — Blithe Spirit

As spirited comedies go, the work of Noël Coward tends to take the boozy cake. The current Cal Shakes script for Blithe Spirit, which will grace our stage August 8–September 2, contains seven uses of the word “martini” (all in speech), ten of the word “cocktail” (eight in stage directions, two in speech), and an intoxicating 18 uses of the word “drink” (nine in speech, nine in stage directions).
