Two plays shortly coming to the end of their London runs are the highly aclaimed God Of Carnage, featuring an amazing cast of Ralph Fiennes, Tamsin Greig, Janet McTeer and Ken Stott, and The Vortex, staring Felicity Kendal in the lead role.
God Of Carnage by Yasmina Reza tells the story of what happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children. Having achieved high praise from the press God Of Carnage is due to close on the 14th June.
The Vortex centres on the tempestuous relationship between glamorous socialite Florence Lancaster, whose appetite for younger men is fuelled by her refusal to grow old, and her hedonistic son Nicky who finds himself competing for her love. Florence is played by Felicity Kendal whose stage credits include Humble Boy, Clouds, Arcadia, The Real Thing, Happy Days and, most recently Amy’s View. Felicity Kendal has received excellent comments from the press for the performance with the Daily Express reporting
“Florence is played by Felicity Kendal in a tour-de-force performance that should set the phones in the box office ringing off the hook”
and The Times, Felicity Kendal
“is in sensational form, achieving moments of anguish and abandonment that send shivers down the spine”
Sadly The Vortex is due to end it’s run on the 7th June.
