Sunday Play: Easy Virtue

on BBC Radio 3

By Noël Coward. Maria Aitken's adaptation for radio opens Radio 3's Coward Centenary season. Larita is a beautiful woman with a past, who has recently married John Whittaker, the eldest son of an upper-middle-class family. Her arrival among his family provokes a clash with their sense of propriety, but she fends off their attacks with wit and charm until she loses control, and with it, her husband.
