Private Lives

Noël Coward’s 1930s comedy of manners Private Lives is one of his most sophisticated and entertaining plays. His cynical take on love and marriage offers a wide array of Coward’s trademark witty repartee and waspish one-liners, delivered by elegant yet hilariously immature characters.

Elyot and Amanda, following a volatile short marriage, have both just remarried – each to a much more sensible spouse. But fate decides to bring them together in the same hotel for their respective honeymoons, where it doesn’t take long for passion to reignite. The inevitable ensues and they elope together to Amanda’s flat in Paris. But it only takes a few days for them to find their fiery romance alternating between bouts of love and anger – it seems they can neither live with nor without each other. At the height of their biggest fight, their new spouses walk in and against their own expectations, soon find themselves drawn into this farcical emotional tempest.
