Razor-sharp wit in Coward play

FAns of the work of Noel Coward are in for a real treat at Nottingham Playhouse over the next two weeks when his popular play Privates Lives is staged there, from October 7-22.

This scintillating comedy of manners stars Janie Dee and Rupert Wickham and is set in a smart hotel in a fashionable French resort.

Two honeymooning couples share adjacent rooms. The only problem is that two of the newlyweds used to be married to each other.

When they meet again, they throw themselves into a love affair without a care for the scandalous consequences.

Coward’s passionate love story is filled with razor-sharp dialogue, irresistible one-liners and acerbic wit. It remains one of the most successful and popular comedies ever written. It exposes the perilous fragility of human emotions.

This sparkling new production is to be directed by Giles Croft and tickets to see it are £7.50-£26.50.
