FIREFLY


Currently in development, FIREFLY is the script Terence was working on during the last months of his life. Inspired by the novel of the same name by Janette Jenkins, it is set over the last five days of the life of Noël Coward at his hide-away home in Jamaica.

A deeply personal scripts, FIREFLY threads together imagined dreams and memories from Coward’s extraordinary life. In it Terence explores the nature of fame and success, the pleasures and struggles of being gay, the value of artistic endeavour, and his own impending mortality.

FIREFLY dips into some of Coward’s greatest creations, including Brief Encounter (1945) - one of Terence’s favourite British films, the play Private Lives (1930), and songs such as Mad About the Boy (1932) as well as Coward’s own home movies.

FIREFLY is being produced by EMU Films (Benediction, 2021) and developed with Curzon Films.
