'Relative Values' 

  by Sir Noel Coward

 

June 2014

Synopsis

An upstairs–downstairs satire of the complexities of snobbery and reverse snobbery, it deals with the clash of cultures between Hollywood stars and the English aristocracy, and, as expressed by Cresswell the butler, "the ancient and inaccurate assumption that, as we are equal in the eyes of God, we should be equal in the eyes of our fellow creatures”.
