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
