Screen stars Jenny Seagrove and Sara Crowe are currently on stage at Northampton’s Royal & Derngate in Noel Coward’s comedy, Fallen Angels.

The pair star as best friends, Julia and Jane. With their passionless husbands away playing golf, a mutual long-ago lover announces his intention to pay the pair an impromptu visit.

A spokesman said: “All in a fluster, there’s clearly only one thing to do: hit the bottle.

“As each successive glass of liquid courage is imbibed, tongues start to loosen, hidden jealousies surface, the claws come out, and all attempts at demure behaviour go out the window.”

Jenny has had a prolific theatre career, appearing in plays such as Present Laughter, Brief Encounter, Volcano and The Country Girl. She is also known to millions of TV viewers as barrister Jo Mills in the BAFTA award-winning Judge John Deed.

Sara Crowe’s vast array of film, TV and theatre credits include appearing in the movie Four Weddings And A Funeral and BBC’s Born And Bred.

Fallen Angels will run throughout this week until Saturday, February 15, with performances at 7.45pm and a 2.30pm matinee today and Saturday. Tickets cost £17.50-£28.50 from 01604 624811.
