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.

“Hurlyburly is crude, rude and deep, despite its main characters’ shallowness, and packs a wallop.” —_Philadelphia City Paper
