Private Lives

by Noël Coward

Performance Showtime: 2 hours and 15 minutes with a 15 minute intermission

Amanda and Elyot are enjoying a romantic honeymoon – just not with each other. A chance meeting on their adjoined hotel balconies brings this divorced duo face-to-face for the first time in five years. Passions and tempers collide in this combustible romp, as the two remember why they fell in love and why they divorced in the first place. Noël Coward’s wit and sophistication are on full display in this scathing sendup of the British upper class of the 1930s.
