De Noel Coward

Résumé: England in the 1920s - the post-War party is in full swing, the English are living life to the full and the enchanting if middle-aged Florence remains a sparkling beauty on the fashionable scene. When her son Nicky returns from Paris with a secret, the veneer of charm and decadence begins to disintegrate as guilty truths are confronted... The Vortex created a notorious sensation when premiered in 1924 with its brave depiction of the darkness behind the dazzle of the Bright Young Things. Noel Coward's career was launched by this compelling, stylish story of the jazz generation dancing its way into a whirlwind of desire and deceit.

Presse : PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "There isn't, alas, enough nervous electricity in Peter Hall's underpowered revival."
NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Compelling but not very well nuanced revival...Fortunately, Felicity Kendal, in riveting form...makes the evening satirically delightful."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Peter Hall's wily production is worth seeing for its reminder of Coward's historic ambivalence and for Felicity Kendal's high-octane central performance."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "This is an evening that memorably moves from cocktails and laughter to the rawest of drama."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "The play may be uneven, but Kendal’s performance decidedly isn’t. "
