The Vortex

by Noel Coward

performed by BTG November 1992

A Play

One of Coward’s most cruelly revealing plays. “The Vortex” concerns the tenuous relationship between a beautiful but ageing socialite and her 24 year old son – recently returned from Paris. For Coward fans seeking the familiar glamour, cynicism and wit, lavish settings and elegant costumes, this play will not disappoint. But beware! Nearly 70 years after this play was first produced in London’s Wesr End, here is a play with a shockingly modern sting in its tail, which will fascinate and haunt its audience, long after the final curtain.
