Novello & Son is a play by Arnold Evans, charting the life of Clara Novello Davies, mother of Ivor Novello, who lived in her small flat in Marylebone. In 1938, Madame Clara Novello Davies – singer, pianist, conductor, one of Cardiff’s most famous daughters – looks back at her life and her relationship with her son Ivor whose unexpected fame has eclipsed hers. In a funny very poignant final performance, she sings his songs and allows us a glimpse of her conflicting emotions… envy, guilt, regret… and a new feeling of invisibility.
