UK tour for Noël Coward’s Volcano

Date Posted: 21/03/2012

Thelma Holt and Bill Kenwright are set to present Noël Coward’s Volcano, touring UK venues from the 21st May.

Starring Jason Durr (pictured), Jenny Seagrove, and Dawn Steele, the production was never performed in the author’s lifetime, and promises a fascinating insight into the glamorous and scandalous Caribbean lifestyle that Coward himself enjoyed.

Recently widowed Adela Shelly finds herself being seduced by the suave Guy Littleton, a visitor to her elegant Caribbean house on the side of an island volcano. When Guy’s acid-tongued wife Melissa decides to fly in to see off the competition, she hasn’t considered that Adela’s best friend, Ellen, might also be falling for her husband’s charms. As tensions bubble up from under the surface and begin to erupt, so does the volcano, all with explosive consequences.

With further dates to be announced, confirmed tour dates include Theatre Royal Windsor (21st May to 2nd June); Richmond Theatre (4th to 9th June); Theatre Royal, Bath (11th to 16th June); Severn Theatre, Shrewsbury (2nd to 7th July); Playhouse, Oxford (16th to 21st July); Theatre Royal Brighton (23rd to 28th July); Churchill Theatre, Bromley (30th July to 4th August); and Malvern’s Festival Theatre (6th to 11th August).
