See why Noël Coward's The Vortex, his first commercially successful hit, made him an overnight sensation in 1924 London. Filled with scandalous subject matter of drug abuse, repressed homosexuality, nymphomania and Oedipal jealousy, The Vortex "still packs a powerful punch ... almost nine decades later" (The Telegraph). In this Cygnet Theatre Company production at San Diego's Old Town Theatre, Nicky Lancaster brings his elegant fiancée, Bunty, home to introduce her to his famous mother, aging socialite Florence Lancaster. Nicky is shocked to discover that Florence has taken a much younger lover, and when Bunty ditches Nicky to run off with his mother's boy-toy, both are forced to confront the truth about themselves.
