It’s London, 1926. And two “wretchedly happily married” women are about to have their lives turned upside down by the return of their former French lover.
Audiences will watch the scandal of Noel Coward’s Fallen Angels unravel in greyscale. Actors, set, costume – all made-up and treated to appear in total black and white, paying homage to the earliest stars of the Silver Screen.
Silent movie montages accompanied by original composition support a physical style that borrows from early movie greats like Chaplin and Keaton. How many iconic movie moments will you spot?
Refused a license in its early days on the grounds of the protagonists’ loose morals, Fallen Angels caused a ripple of outrage across Europe, seeing the play banned in a number of places. Almost 100 years after its eyebrow-raising debut, Blacklight Productions is proud to present this raucous comedy about the games people play, and the women who win them.
This is theatre as you’ve never seen it before. Don’t miss this unique theatrical experience – a visual treat, and an evening of guaranteed belly-laughs.

About the Company…
BlackLight Productions was founded in August 2016 to develop theatre that would be built on the most diverse talents of Ireland’s creative community. Founding members Cliodhna McAllister, Sancha Mulcahy, and Henrique Caliento met while studying at the Gaiety School of Acting, as members of the GSA Performance Theatre Company.
Our central goal is to grow work from challenging, critical, and encouraging collaboration. We believe theatre should be brave with form and with content, and we look forward to presenting work that stretches our collective, and our audiences. We are committed to exploring multimedia in performance, and to extending our narratives beyond the stage through transmedia projects.
