The Vortex 

Directed by Alex Dybell & Jennifer Nunn

"The play brought out the disturbing savagery underneath the shiny surface."

Noel Coward’s The Vortex is a unique cocktail of his signature witty dialogue and fast-paced comedy, blended with darker tones and themes of jealousy, vanity and obsession. A quintessentially English country house party is torn apart by the self-destructive behaviours of a mother and her son. Blood Sweat and Tea’s Production has put a modern twist on this Noel Coward classic.
