Fallen Angels

By Sir Noël Coward
Directed by Shannon Cochran
November 25, 2015 — January 10, 2016

Before Julia and Jane married their comfortable husbands – there was Maurice. An elegant Frenchman and youthful indiscretion for them both, he has written to announce his impending return. Their blissfully ignorant husbands embark on a weekend of golf, leaving the door open to revelry and rivalry. Noël Coward’s celebrated wit sparkles in this risqué stylish sex farce that captures the hedonistic spirit of the Roaring Twenties.
