MAUCKINGBIRD THEATRE COMPANY TO PRODUCE NOEL COWARD’S BRILLIANTLY WITTY ​FALLEN ANGELS

Mauckingbird Theatre Company, presents Noel Coward’s ​Fallen Angels through its innovative queer lens. Directed by Mauckingbird Artistic Director Peter Reynolds, this production will incorporate Mauckingbird’s mission to produce innovative, affordable, gay themed theater by altering the genders of the plays’ central characters. ​Fallen Angel
​ s runs from January 9-27 at the Louis Bluver Theatre at The Drake. To purchase tickets, visit Mauckingbird.org or call 267-385-6910.

With this production, Mauckingbird turns its lens on Coward’s comedy of two best friends, now married to others for five years, who enjoy tranquil relationships with their husbands “devoid of violent emotions of any kind.” When Maurice Duclos, a former lover of both friends, sends word from France of his impending visit, things are certain to be upended in this witty comedy by England’s distinguished gay writer. Director Peter Reynolds states, “​We have always wanted to produce a Noel Coward piece at Mauckingbird and are thrilled to tell this story, first presented in 1925, which still has much to say about the nature of marriage. Of course, Mr. Coward says it all with his signature wit, sophistication and humor.”
