Fallen Angels first opened at the Globe Theatre in London in 1925 and has been reprised, countless times, around the world, since. Within every British male breast beats a feverish insecurity concerning the French - especially when it comes to matters of pleasing women. You can see this timeless national neurosis manifest as acutely as anywhere in "Fallen Angels,", one of the more distinctive offerings from that consummate English scribe Noel Coward. Most of Coward's plays are romantic comedies dealing with well-heeled heterosexual couples that end up denigrating dull conformists and venerating a certain kind of panache and poise. Although "Fallen Angels" also appears to be about two couples, it's really about the two wives, who feeling something close to what Billy Wilder called The Seven Year Itch, are giggly and infatuated with a Frenchman with whom they both have enjoyed an 'assignation francoise'. Julia and Jane alternate between friendship and rivalry, while imagining a little extramarital rekindling of their mutual old flame. These antics, predictably, are at the expense of the women's very dull, golf-playing husbands.
