One of Coward's best-loved classics in a single-play edition
Coward's wit and precision as a modern dramatist is nowhere better exemplified than in this classic modern plays from 1930. Elyot Chase and Amanda Prynne (originally played by Gertrude Lawrence and Noël Coward), recently divorced from one another five years previously, arrive coincidentally at the same French hotel. They are honeymooning with their respective new spouses. Encountering one another by chance, each is at once horrified and fascinated by the other. Together they leave for Paris and begin a roundelay of quarrels and love intrigues that culminate in their getting back together.
Sinossi: Private Lives' was written in 1930 and has been a mainstay of British theater ever since. This sharply funny play of reversals focuses on Elyot and Amanda, a passionate but feuding couple who divorced five years before. Now, on the first night of their honeymoons with their new partners, they find that they are all staying in the same hotel on the French Riviera. Fireworks are inevitable. The roles of the two ex-spouses are brilliantly recreated by Paul Scofield and Patricia Routledge, while Cowards scintillating repartee epitomizes all the glamour and sophistication of life between the wars for societys spoiled darlings.
