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
