The Vortex: Rarely Produced Noël Coward Comedy Set in Roaring '20s
COMP - $15*
$15 - $30
Noël Coward, the master of biting theatrical wit best known for his classic comedies Blithe Spirit and Private Lives, had his first big success with The Vortex. The comedy-drama was considered downright scandalous when it premiered in 1924, and its set-up is still plenty edgy, even today. Struggling with a serious cocaine habit and his repressed homosexuality, a newly-engaged Nicky returns home to find his mother, an aging socialite, having an affair with a younger man -- who just happens to be his fiance's ex. Coward delves into the themes of sexual vanity and drug abuse with his trademark rapier jabs, and not only wrote the play, but actually starred in the original productions in London and on Broadway. This Dead Writers Theatre production stars Kaelen Strouse and Bonnie Hilton.
