Noël Coward’s most popular and enduring stage comedy
In Private Lives, strong passions and stronger personalities set the stage for a classic battle of the sexes.
1930. Deauville, France. Two newlymarried couples, Sibyl and Elyot, Victor and Amanda, occupy adjoining honeymoon suites in the same hotel. Champagne flows and the sea shimmers in the moonlight as the newlyweds prepare for the evening ahead. But when Amanda overhears a familiar voice singing a forgotten song, an old spark reignites, with spectacular consequences.
Full of razor-sharp wit and quick-fire dialogue, Private Lives remains Coward’s most popular and enduring stage comedy. Since its opening at London’s Phoenix Theatre in August 1930, the play has retained its remarkable appeal, captivating audiences worldwide.
