Noel Coward was one of the most successful English authors of light comedy and farce up until his death in 1973. He wrote over 60 plays and musicals, as well as composing memorable ditties like Mad Dogs and Englishmen.
The next major production for Lismore Theatre Company is Noel Coward`s light and sophisticated play Fallen Angels. Running on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from May 15-31, and with a matinee at 2pm on Saturday, May 24, Fallen Angels is on at the Rochdale Theatre in Lismore from 8pm.
The show features two couples who are happily though boringly married and are the best of friends until a postcard arrives with news of the imminent arrival of a certain handsome Frenchman, former lover of the women. (Oh dear.) The comedy comes from the contrast between the smooth, very English polish of the characters and their underlying sensual desires cool manners versus hot blood.
Tickets are $15/12 and available from Caddies Coffee in Lismore. For more info phone Jennie on 6687 9167.
