Noël Coward’s Private Lives

Location: Belgrade Theatre Belgrade Square Corporation St Coventry CV1 1GS

Time:

Cost: £19.75

In Private Lives, strong passions and stronger personalities set the stage for a classic battle of the sexes.

London Classic Theatre present a major new touring production of Noël Coward’s sparkling comedy.

1930. Deauville, France. Two newly-married couples occupy adjoining honeymoon suites in the same hotel. As a distant orchestra plays, Sibyl gazes adoringly at charismatic husband Elyot, while Victor admires his new wife, the vivacious and sophisticated Amanda.

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 is Noël Coward’s most popular and enduring stage comedy. Extraordinarily written in only three days, Private Lives opened at London’s Phoenix Theatre in August 1930 to packed houses. Since then, this charming comedy of manners has retained its remarkable appeal, captivating audiences all over the world.

Running time: 1hour 40mins
