Private Lives

PRIVATE LIVES

By Noël Coward
Directed by Christopher Dippel

October 4-13

Private Lives is one of the most sophisticated, entertaining plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed. (Samuel French)

Show times: Friday, October 4 and October 11, at 8 p.m.; Saturday, October 5 and 12, at 8 p.m.; Sunday, October 6 and 13, at 2 p.m.; and Thursday, October 10, at 8 p.m.
