Private Lives

8 November 2021–13 November 2021

Leicester Drama Society

Main House

Synopsis

Elyot Chase’s second honeymoon is both shaken and stirred by the discovery that ex wife Amanda is also enjoying a second honeymoon, and to make matters worse in the next suite sharing the same balcony. 

The captivating, mercurial Amanda and the world weary sophisticate Elyot begin to wonder if that first careless rapture they once shared is not a thing of the past after all. 

Coward’s glittering comedy of both good and bad manners, polished with his customary acerbic wit, not always obscuring the beating hearts of his characters, gives a delightful evening of love, laughter and occasional tears. Written for himself and his lifelong friend Gertrude Lawrence, the play has become a much-loved classic, delighting audiences in theatres the world over.
