The Rep Presents Noël Coward’s ‘Private Lives’ September 30-October 23, 2022

span style="page:WordSection1">ST. LOUIS (September 15, 2022) – The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis (The Rep) continues its thrilling 2022-2023 mainstage season with Noël Coward’s classic comedy of manners Private Lives. Preview performances begin Friday, September 30, officially opening Friday, October 7 and running through October 23, 2022 at the Catherine B. Berges Theatre at COCA.


span style="page:WordSection1">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.


span style="page:WordSection1">Known for his wit and witticism, Noël Coward was presented with a Special Tony Award for his multiple and immortal contributions to the theatre in 1970, just three years before his death.
