‘Fallen Angels’ a devilish good time at North Coast Rep in Solana Beach

‘Fallen Angels’ showcases the wit of Noel Coward.

North Coast Repertory Theatre presents Noel Coward’s “Fallen Angels,” previewing Wednesday, Sept. 3.

This is Coward at his inimitable best. “Fallen Angels” provides a continuously entertaining two hours of delight, combining two slightly bored British women, an amorous Frenchman, clueless husbands and one very cheeky maid.

When it premiered in 1925, audiences were shocked by its theme of female sexuality and longing. Veering from witty asides to uproarious slapstick, this fast-paced show will have you in stitches.

Having overlooked the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve for more than three decades, it was easy for Alice Michael Evans to choose a setting for her children’s adventure book.

“When I moved out here, I couldn’t help but imagine what it would be like for a child to grow up here,” said Evans, a recently retired teacher who has lived in Del Mar for 31 years. “Children who grow up here are among the luckiest on Earth. I don’t think they always realize that.”
