Private Lives by Noel Coward

Weds 20 – Sat 23rd November 2019

Everyone is welcome to attend auditions to act or get involved backstage in our next show.

Noël Coward’s elegant and often bitingly funny comedy of manners, gives a wonderful insight into the marital politics and sexual etiquette of the 1930s.  Elyot and Amanda, divorced for five years and honeymooning in adjacent hotel suites in the south of France with new partners, are shocked to discover their proximity to one another and having done so, what then follows veers from the comic to the often poignant at break neck speed.  Perhaps not as popular with Amateur Dramatic groups as other Coward pieces such as Blithe Spirit and Hay Fever, it demands so much of the four players involved, the dialogue is nevertheless vintage Coward requiring merely the deftest of touches to bring it into sharp relief and provide superb theatre.

Tickets will be announced closer to the date and we look forward to seeing you there.

Sara Fisher, Director
