Two "wretchedly happy married women," Julia and Jane stir up all kinds of sexy trouble -- and many, many cocktails -- in Noël Coward's naughty comedy Fallen Angels. Bored silly by high society, these besties are elated when a mutual ex-lover drifts back into town, bringing with him hints of adventure and reigniting their shared desire for his many charms. Written when Coward was just 25, this Jazz-Age jewel sparkles with some of his best lines and craftiest jokes. A piece of comedy heaven, Fallen Angels premiered at the Globe Theatre in 1925 and went on to Broadway success. Rev. David Cregan directs for Villanova Theatre. Learn More

Saw "Assistance" Friday nite at the Wilma Theatre. It's billed as "off Broadway," but it needs a lot more work to get to Broadway. It's worth seeing for the delightful young actors and for the look at the 20-somethings' culture. But
it needs a more defined narrative arc, and a reason to care about the central characters. Still, a fun evening !!
An Off-Broadway hit comedy in 2012, Assistance is the second offering in playwright Leslye Headland’s “Seven Deadly Sins” series – this time treating greed – and comes on the heels of Bachelorette, another hit and also a feature film release. The Wilma is thrilled to announce the return of director David Kennedy, who previously directed the Wilma’s 2011 success The Understudy.
