Rehearsals have started for Noël Coward’s The Vortex – the first show of Chichester’s 2023 Festival and the full cast has now been revealed..
Joining Lia Williams and Joshua James, the real-life mother and son playing their fictional counterparts Florence and Nicky Lancaster, are Jessica Alade as Clara, Priyanga Burford as Helen, Richard Cant as Pawnie, Sean Delaney as Tom, Hugh Ross as David, Evan Milton as Bruce, and Esme Scarborough as Preston.
Fifty years after his death, Noël Coward’s brilliantly witty and stinging portrait of the darkness beneath the glittering surface of the Jazz Age is as vivid today as when it premiered, causing a sensation and catapulting its young writer to his first great success. Directed by Daniel Raggett, it opens a month today, 28th April and runs until 20th May. Read more about the play and cast, and book your tickets!
