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. Fallen Angels is about the games people play, and about the women who win them.
Buckle up.

Audiences will watch the scandal of Noel Coward’s Fallen Angels unravel in greyscale. Actors, set, costume – all made-up and treated to appear in total black and white, paying homage to the earliest stars of the Silver Screen.

Silent movie montages accompanied by original composition support a physical style that borrows from early movie greats like Chaplin and Keaton. How many iconic movie moments will you spot?

Refused a license in its early days on the grounds of the protagonists’ loose morals, Fallen Angels caused a ripple of outrage across Europe, seeing the play banned in a number of places. Almost 100 years after its eyebrow-raising debut, Blacklight Productions is proud to present this raucous comedy about the games people play, and the women who win them.

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.
