Play directory : The Vortex
Welcome to the Mandy Actors UK Plays Directory.
The information below is intended to give you a brief guide to the show and highlight some of the other Mandy Actors UK members who have also been involved in this show.
The story follows a talented young composer, Nicky Lancaster. Nicky proposes to his lover Bunty, a journalist, while his mother Florence, an ageing socialite, has extramarital affairs with younger men, including Tom, who is also Bunty's ex-fiancee. Tensions come to a boil as Nicky struggles with his severe cocaine addiction and repressed homosexuality (a theme that was necessarily subtly conveyed, considering contemporary attitudes), as well as the simmering resentment he feels for his vainglorious mother.
