The eighth volume in the Coward Collection includes I'llLeave It To You and The Young Idea, the first of Coward's plays ever tobe produced. These were, as he said, "enthusiastically acclaimed by thecritics and ran five weeks and eight weeks respectively. In both ofthem I appeared with the utmost determination."

This Was a Man, aslightly later play, was written in 1926, after the successes whichmade his name. It was originally banned by the Lord Chamberlain "forfacetious adultery."
