The Vortex archiveEngland in the 1920s - the post-War party is in full swing, the English are living life to the full and the enchanting if middle-aged Florence remains a sparkling beauty on the fashionable scene. When her son Nicky returns from Paris with a secret, the veneer of charm and decadence begins to disintegrate as guilty truths are confronted... The Vortex created a notorious sensation when premiered in 1924 with its brave depiction of the darkness behind the dazzle of the Bright Young Things. Noel Coward's career was launched by this compelling, stylish story of the jazz generation dancing its way into a whirlwind of desire and deceit.
