Craig has been cast in “The Vortex“, a play by the English writer and actor Noël Coward. He will play the lead role of Nicky. This was Coward’s scandalous first play that made him an overnight sensation.
The story follows a talented young pianist, Nicky Lancaster. He 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-fiancé. Tensions come to a boil as Nicky struggles with his severe cocaine addiction and repressed homosexuality, as well as the simmering resentment he feels for his vainglorious mother.
“The Vortex” will be directed by Gene Franklin Smith and will play at the Malibu Playhouse in Los Angeles from April 11th – May, 18th.
