Noel Coward's Fallen Angels is coming to the Devonshire Park Theatre in the middle of September, replacing the previously advertised The Governess. (If you've already bought tickets for The Governess, please contact Eastbourne Theatres for a refund.) The classic comedy will star Jenny Seagrove and Sara Crowe as best friends Julia and Jane.
When their their passionless husbands, Fred and Willy, are away playing golf, a mutual past 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.
But it’s not until the unexpected early return of their golfing husbands that the women’s evening really hits its frenzied peak.
Devonshire Park Theatre, Mon 16th to Sat 21st Sep, 19:45.
Wed and Sat matinees, 14:30.
Tickets various prices, available online, by calling 01323 812000, or in person at the Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
