Fallen Angels Smock Alley
It’s London, 1926. And two ‘wretchedly happily married’ women are about to have their lives turned upside down by the return of their former French lover. Buckle up.
Refused license in its early days on the ground of the protagonists’ loose moral, ‘Fallen Angels’ caused a wave of outrage across Europe, seeing the play banned in a number of countries. Almost 100 years after it’s eyebrow-raising debut, Blacklight Productions is proud to present this raucous comedy about the games people play, and the women who win them.
You will watch the scandal of Noel Coward’s ‘Fallen Angels’ unravel in old-Hollywood black and white. Actors, set, costume – all made-up is treated to appear in total black and white, paying homage to the earliest stars of the Silver Screen.
Silent movie montages and original composition from Karima Dillon-El Toukhy support a physical style that borrows form early movie greats like Chaplin and Keaton. How many iconic movie moments will you spot?
This is theatre as you’ve never seen it before. Don’t miss this unique theatrical experience – a visual treat, and an evening of guaranteed belly-laughs.
