Noël Coward’s newly discovered gem
Recently widowed Adela Shelly finds herself being seduced by the suave Guy Littleton, a visitor to her elegant Pacific house. When Guy’s acid-tongued wife Melissa decides to fly in to see off the competition, she hasn’t considered that Adela’s best friend might also be falling for her husband’s charms! As tensions begin to erupt, so does the volcano, with explosive consequences.
Never performed in the author’s lifetime, this is the first major production of a work which gives a fascinating insight into the glamorous and scandalous Caribbean lifestyle that Coward himself enjoyed.
Jenny Seagrove’s illustrious career has included starring roles in television classics from Barbara Taylor Bradford’s A Woman of Substance to Judge John Deed; Films such as Local Hero and Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, and over a dozen West End successes, most recently in The Country Girl opposite Martin Shaw. Also starring Dawn Steele who has recently completed three series of ITV’s Wild at Heart and starred in the hit BBC drama Monarch of the Glen and Jason Durr who is of course well known for his seven years as the star of ITV’s Heartbeat, and more recently Above Suspicion.
