Celebration Theatre has announced that the final show of its 2011-2012 Season will be a very limited run of Noel Coward's classic comedy, DESIGN FOR LIVING, directed by Brian Schnipper (Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays). DESIGN FOR LIVING will open on Friday, July 13 and will perform through Saturday, August 25 at Celebration Theatre, 7051B Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood.

In DESIGN FOR LIVING, the classic ménage-a-trois play by Noel Coward, Gilda and Otto are living a bohemian lifestyle, she as a dilettante, he as a painter. A visit by Leo, Otto's old friend and a successful playwright leads to an affair between he and Gilda leaving Otto so devastated, he goes off on a tramp steamer. Now living in London with Leo, Gilda is visited by Otto, who has become a successful and sought-after artist. Just as abruptly, Gilda then goes off with Ernest, a stuffy English art dealer leaving both Otto and Leo to find solace both physically and emotionally in each other. The following year, now married to Ernest, Gilda has become a successful decorator in New York. Her seemingly complacent life is disrupted by the return of both Otto and Leo, who have come to take her back with them.
