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
Neal LaBute (Playwright) is the author of The Shape of Things and Fat Pig, which, with reasons to be pretty, form a trilogy focusing on our modern-day obsession with physical appearance.

LaBute is also the author of The Mercy Seat, one of the first major theatrical responses to the 9/11 attacks, and Bash: Latterday Plays. His film career was launched with In the Company of Men, which won the Filmmaker’s Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival, and major awards at the Deauville Film Festival, the Independent Spirit Awards, the Society of Texas Film Critics Awards, and the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.
