Dukes Theatre: Private Lives

The Dukes, Lancaster LA1 1QE

Presented by London Classic Theatre

By Noël Coward | Directed by Michael Cabot

Strong passions and stronger personalities set the stage for a classic battle of the sexes in 1930s 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.
