Private Lives

Amanda Prynne
About the Production

A comedy of manners in three acts by Noël Coward, it concerns a divorced couple who, while honeymooning with their new spouses, discover that they are staying in adjacent rooms at the same hotel. Despite a perpetually stormy relationship, they realise that they still have feelings for each other. The second act love scene was nearly censored in Britain as too risqué. Coward wrote one of his most popular songs, "Some Day I'll Find You", for the play. Directed by Victoria Bussert, set design by John Ezell, costumes by Charlotte Yetman.

Featured Review

Ravishing in Yetman's gown, pajamas and suit, she daintily devours everything in her path, a roaring beast with manners.
