Jenny Seagrove, Dawn Steele and Jason Durr star in Noel Cowards Volcano at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Never performed in the author's lifetime due to the climate at the time, this is the first major production of Volcano and gives a fascinating insight into the glamorous and sometimes scandalous island lifestyle which Noel Coward himself enjoyed.
In Volcano recently widowed Adela Shelly finds herself being seduced by the suave Guy Littleton, a visitor to her elegant Pacific 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 contemplated that Adela's best friend, Ellen, might also be falling for her husband... and as tensions bubble up from under the surface and begin to erupt, so does the volcano, all with explosive consequences...
Volcano is directed by Roy Marsden, who also directed Jenny Seagrove in A Daughter's a Daughter at Trafalgar Studios. Her other recent credits include The Country Girl and Bedroom Farce. She starred as Emma Harte in the Emmy nominated series A Woman of Substance and is also well-known for her many television roles, most notably QC Jo Mills in the BBC series Judge John Deed.

Love Triangles in Noel Coward's play Volcano
Volcano is an intriguing long-lost play by Noel Coward, which he wrote in 1956 and then suppressed because he thought it would alienate the friends it was based upon. There are love triangles galore and a barrage of witty one-liners.
