Private Lives (Auditioning Tuesday 3rd August)

PRIVATE LIVES
By Noel Coward
Directed by John Ghent

Production dates: 8th – 13th November 2021<

Synopsis
Elyot and Amanda, once married to each other but now married to Sybil and Victor, discover the passion they once had for each other is certainly not a thing of the past. Realising this when the couples are honeymooning in adjoining suites in the same hotel is perhaps not the most ideal of situations, but Noel Coward extracts every ounce of comedy out of this impossible situation with his inimitable wit and style.

Characters

Elyot Chase: witty, irreverent, sophisticated.
Sybil Chase: Elyot’s second, rather innocent, younger wife.
Amanda Prynne: spirited, independent, unconventional.
Victor Prynne: Amanda’s rather more conventional second husband.
Louise: French-speaking maid.

Age range
30/40

Doris Partington, b. Oldham 1900; engaged 1923, m. Jack Bradley in Oldham 1924. [Age 5 in child scenes in 1905.]

Age range
Ages are not important as the characters play themselves from childhood to, in Doris’ case, old age. What matters is the ability of the four actors to gel into a recognisable family group with all the inherent problems that the generations bring.

Books available from 12th July to borrow from the theatre office. If you have any questions or want to talk about the roles, please text or ring Nadine on 07711 285155.
