Private Lives by Noël Coward

They can’t live with each other – but can they live apart?

With its stinging barbs and clever wit, Private Lives is Noël Coward’s finest and funniest comedy.

Elyot and Amanda divorced five years ago.  Glamorous Amanda and her prosaic new husband are honeymooning on the French Riviera, when she finds that, quite by chance, the hotel room next to theirs is occupied by her ex-husband, the rich and reckless Elyot, and his new wife!

Old passions begin to bubble between Elyot and Amanda and, with no regard for propriety, they soon forget the numerous good reasons why they broke up in the first place and impulsively escape to Paris pursued by their respective spouses.

Can it last? Or will they find that their passion, which alternates between love and anger, drives them apart yet again? 

Forget those grey days of winter and come with us to a sophisticated world of cocktails, elegant glamour and sparkling repartee.
