Jenny Seagrove and Sara Crowe star as best friends Julia and Jane in Noël Coward’s Fallen Angels which comes to Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre from Monday to Saturday, March 10 to 15.
With their passionless husbands away playing golf, a mutual long-ago-lover announces his intention to pay Julia and Jane an impromptu visit.
All in a fluster, there’s clearly only one thing to do: pop open the champagne.
As each successive glass of liquid courage is imbibed, tongues start to loosen, hidden jealousies surface, the claws come out.
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.
Jenny Seagrove’s prolific theatre career has seen her play the lead in almost every West End playhouse, with recent credits including Noël Coward’s Present Laughter, Brief Encounter, Volcano and The Country Girl.
Jenny is also known to millions of TV viewers as barrister Jo Mills in the BAFTA Award-winning Judge John Deed, which she starred in opposite Martin Shaw.
Sara Crowe’s array of film, TV and theatre credits range from her role as the first bride in Four Weddings and a Funeral, to BBC’s Born and Bred, and her multiple Olivier Award successes in West End productions of Noël Coward plays: Olivier Award nominated for Best Comedy Performance in Hay Fever and Olivier Award-winner for Best Supporting Actress in Private Lives.
