Exploring the boundaries of lust, philanthropy and marital fidelity, this previously suppressed work of Coward’s takes places on a volcanic island in the South Pacific that seethes with underlying social pressure. Suave Guy Littleton, allegedly based on Coward’s friend Ian Fleming, has his eye on mourning widow Adela. Tensions start to bubble as Guy’s wife makes an appearance and tremulous emotions appear poised to explode as the inevitable eruption looms. Never performed in the author's lifetime, the play debuts in the West End under the production of Bill Kenwright and Thelma Holt, while the stage is fired up by esteemed artistes Jenny Seagrove, Wild at Heart’s Dawn Steele, and Jason Durr of Heartbeat fame.
Sitting comfortably in London’s theatre district, the Vaudeville Theatre welcomes guests into regal interiors and top-priced seating in the stalls. Guests can settle in for a 7.45pm curtain-up, or opt for a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday or Wednesday. Drinks are available from the upper or dress circle bar both pre-show and during the interval to lubricate literary discussion. The theatre’s central location is ideal for after-show nibbles and cocktails over which to review the evening’s entertainment. Alternatively, Charing Cross and Leicester Square stations are equally nearby for a swift ride home.

Volcano earned an entertaining 4/5 in The Telegraph, as well as a positive write up courtesy of The Independent. While there were some very mixed opinions from critics and suggestions that Coward would have made revisions, given the opportunity, most reviewers suggested the play would be particularly enjoyable for his fans.
Ultimately Volcano is a curiosity, rather than an unearthed masterpiece. Yet it provides an evening of near-constant entertainment, and of unremitting interest.
