Coward at the Palace

Southend Shakespeare Company is to stage a presentation of Noel Coward’s The Vortex at The Dixon Studio in the Palace Theatre, Westcliff, from Tuesday November 2 to Saturday November 6.

Set in 1930’s London high society, The Vortex follows the complicated lives of the Lancaster family and the people caught up with them.

What should be a pleasant weekend in the family’s country home rapidly degenerates into a much more sinister event when the family are forced to face up to their shortcomings and readjust their views of the world.

This is a play which explores the frailty of human nature, and the devastating power of secrets.
