Private Lives

Private Lives


On a glorious summer evening on the terrace of a stylish Rivera hotel, two couples are on honeymoon. As the pre-dinner martinis flow, fate deals a strange hand. Elyot and Amanda are suddenly face to face again - and it wasn’t that long ago that they were married to each other... Noel Coward’s sparkling and witty comedy of love reignited, continues to delight and endure since it was first performed in 1930 and is arguably one of the greatest and most popular plays of the twentieth century.
