Chichester Festival Theatre Opens PRIVATE LIVES Tonight, Sept 21
Private Lives fizzes with Coward's trademark wit and dramatic precision. Amanda and Elyot meet five years after their marriage break-up - while on honeymoon with their new spouses. Passion reignited, they hurl themselves headlong into a relationship once more, without stopping to consider the consequences.
Private Lives is at the Minerva Theatre, Chichester from tonight, 21 September – 27 October. Evenings 7.45pm (except for Press Night on Friday 28 September at 7.00pm), Matinees 2.30pm. Tickets: Previews/Press Night £23.50, Evenings/Matinees £29.50. To book, go to www.cft.org.uk or call the Box Office on 01243 781312.
In Noël Coward's Private Lives, Philip Hoare, author of the highly regarded Noël Coward: A Biography, explores the complexity beneath the playwright's sparkling text.
