An Update on "Too Many Crooks"
While the most recent lockdown caused the cancellation of the last four shows, we are still hoping to have a couple more performances on a "pop-up" weekend in September or October. As soon as we know if this is possible, we will let you all know!
The Vortex shot Noël Coward to fame in 1924 as both a playwright and a performer, its depiction of sex and drugs in the Jazz Age stunning the critics and causing a sensation.
The story revolves around Florence Lancaster, a middle-aged socialite unable to accept the fact that the best years of her life have passed. To compensate for this, she is inclined to openly have associations with younger men while her catty friends roll their eyes over her vanity and obsession with youth. She has a troubled relationship with her son, Nicky, who is a talented pianist, recently returned from Paris. His unhappiness has driven him to a cocaine dependency and as the tension between mother and son rises, the facades drop away and the play moves into darker territory.
Directed by Andrew Meldrum.
10 performances over 3 weekends - Friday November 12th - Sunday November 28th.
