Noël Coward’s Private Lives

Noël Coward’s Private Lives

Elyot Chase (Toby Stephens) and Amanda Prynne (Anna Chancellor) are glamorous, rich, reckless . . . and divorced. Five years later, their love for one another is unexpectedly rekindled when they take adjoining suites of a French hotel while honeymooning with their new spouses. This chance encounter instantly reignites their passion, and they fling themselves headlong into a whirlwind of love and lust once more, without a thought for partners present or turbulences past. This explosive production proves Noël Coward still has the power to thrill, provoke and delight. Described by the critics as 'one of the finest productions of the play I have seen .... startlingly fresh, funny and unexpectedly moving' (The Daily Telegraph), 'You don't want the night to end' (The Sunday Times), 'Quite possibly the performance of a lifetime for Stephens' (The Independent) , Amanda Prynne is a role Anna Chancellor was born to play' (The Financial Times). 
Originally a Chichester Festival Theatre production, Private Lives was captured live in London at the Gielgud Theatre.

Also starring Anthony Calf and Anna-Louise Plowman.

Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes

I would suggest that it may be a good idea to book your ticket in advance for this. You can do online here (select Derby Cinema de Lux from the drop down list)  or at the cinema box office in person:

    Good night thanks with everyone. I've just about got screechy Sybil out of my head! Usherette (or usher in this case) was a lovely unexpected touch. Thanks for organising Steve.

    I wasn't sure beforehand that live theatre in a cinema would work ... but it does, very well. And the ice creams at the interval were an added bonus :-)

    A different kind of evening which is always good. My first time watching a play on the big screen. Thanks again Steve for coming up with the idea. Much appreciated as always.

    We will meet in the foyer at the top of the escalators. I will send out an e-mail the day before. However, if you do end up running late, I can tell you that it will be shown in Screen 9.

    Unfortunately am not going to be able to attend now as my manager has asked to take me to dinner for delivering on a big project.

    Hi Steve,
    If I buy a ticket for this on line I'm assuming it's the £7.00 not the £10 one? Not sure what the difference is!

    January 11, 2014

    • Steve

      I believe the £10 is the adult ticket price and the £7 is the child ticket price but I agree they haven't made it very clear on the website. I've seen it advertised at £13 at other cinemas, so it would be about right but I will try and find out.

      January 11, 2014

    • Steve

      It's £10 :-)

      January 15, 2014

  • Steve

    The website has now been corrected and the ticket price is showing as £10.

  • Nikki

    Should be ok for this work dependent, will hold off buying ticket for a week or so, just in case!

    January 9, 2014

    • Steve

      Hi Nikki. That's fine. I'm sure you'll be ok for a while yet. You may even get one on the night but as it's a one-off showing it's probably better not to risk it.

  • Judith

    Hi Steve, I'm a little confused, are we meant to be booking our tickets individually now, or are you waiting to see what interest there is & we get a number of tickets at the same time in order for us to site together>

    • Steve

      Hi. Usually with cinemas, tickets aren't numbered and you sit where you want, so it really shouldn't matter when you buy your ticket. It's a long way off though, so if you want to wait until nearer the time, to see what interest there is, that shouldn't be a problem. I just thought that it might risky turning on the night hoping to get a ticket :-)

    • Judith

      Oh OK Steve, thanks, always thinking ahead. :-))
