‘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.

Rosina Reynolds will direct a cast that includes Joanna Strapp, Thomas Stephen Miller, Jackie Ritz, Jason Maddy, Summer Spiro, and Richard Baird. The design staff includes Marty Burnett (Scenic Design), Matt Novotny (Light Design), Alina Bokovikova (Costume Design), Aaron Rumley (Sound Design) and Peter Herman (Hair & Wig Design). Rumley is stage manager.

This production has been made possible by the generosity of Holly Smith Jones.

Opening night, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, includes a post-show reception. On Friday, Sept. 12, there will be a special talkback with the cast and artistic director.

Regular performances through Sept. 28 are 7 p.m. Wednesdays, 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 7 p.m. Sundays, and 2 p.m. matinees on Saturdays and Sundays.
