Fallen Angels aim to sparkle and fly high in comedy at Royal

Noel Coward’s comedy classic Fallen Angels is aiming to sparkle when it hits the Royal stage from Monday. February 10 to Saturday, February 15.

This production stars Jenny Seagrove and Sara Crowe who in the play are best friends Julia and Jane.

With their passionless husbands away playing golf, a mutual long-ago-lover announces his intention to pay Julia and Jane an impromptu visit.

All in a fluster, there’s clearly only one thing to do: hit the bottle.

As each successive glass of liquid courage is imbibed, tongues start to loosen, hidden jealousies surface, the claws come out, and all attempts at demure behaviour go out the window. However it’s not until the unexpected early return of their golfing husbands that the women’s evening really hits its frenzied peak.

Jenny Seagrove is one of the UK’s most respected actresses.

Her prolific theatre career has seen her play the lead in almost every West End playhouse, with recent credits including Noël Coward’s Present Laughter, Brief Encounter, Volcano and The Country Girl with Martin Shaw.

Jenny is also known to millions of TV viewers as barrister Jo Mills in the BAFTA award-winning Judge John Deed, which she starred in opposite Martin Shaw.

Sara Crowe’s vast array of film, TV and theatre credits range from her role as the first bride in Four Weddings and a Funeral, to BBC’s Born and Bred, and her successes in West End productions of Noël Coward plays, including an Olivier Award nomination for Best Comedy Performance in Hay Fever and Olivier Award win for Best Supporting Actress in Private Lives.

Fallen Angels will be performances nightly at 7.45pm, and matinees at 2.30pm on Thursday and Saturday.

Tickets priced from £28.50 to £17.50.

They can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811 or online at www.royalandderngate.co.uk
