Private Lives

Private Lives

By Noel Coward

August 17-27

Directed by Emily Heugatter


Champagne and laughter will explode with Noel Coward’s timeless comedy Private Lives.  Glamorous, rich and reckless, Elyot and Amanda have been divorced from each other for five years.  Now both are honeymooning with their new spouses in the South of France.  When by chance they meet again across adjoining hotel balconies, their romantic feelings for each other are immediately rekindled.  Without a care for scandal, new partners or memories of what drove them apart in the first place, they hurl themselves headlong into love and lust.  Private Lives is a dazzling witty masterpiece and considered to be one of the greatest comedies ever written.
