With its witty dialogue, tangled web of affairs and secrets, and near-constant laughs, it would be easy to confuse The Cottage
with a classic Noel Coward comedy. But the man who wrote Around the World in Eighty Days
and 1969's The Italian Job
didn't write this particular story of love, sex and betrayal. However, the woman who did, Sandy Rustin, was very much inspired by him. And while Rustin may have wanted to mimic Coward's style, she's got plenty of her own comedic credits too, like her play Rated P (for Parenthood)
, which is being developed by ABC Studios. In The Cottage
, Rustin created a group of big personalities, centered around Sylvia Van Kipness, who comes to the English Countryside in 1923 to expose her love affair with her husband's brother. But in between the tea, cigarettes and an incident with a "slightly" loaded gun, everyone's true identities and their ideas of marriage are called into question.
