Private Lives is a classic romantic comedy by the playwright, Noel Coward. Written in 1930, the saucy play was almost censored due to a risque scene in the second act, but ended up being a roaring success. Testament to this, Private Lives has been revived at least half a dozen times, the most recent being directed by Jonathan Kent at the 2012 Chichester Festival. That same production has now been scheduled for the Gielgud Theatre, and will be showing until 21st September.
Starring Toby Stephens and Anna Chancellor, they play a divorced couple who run into one another while on honeymoon with their new spouses. Is it possible that there are still a few sparks in the air? You bet. And those sparks go flying.
Tickets to Private Lives are usually £22.50-£53.50, but if you book with Time Out, you can get an exclusive offer of top price tickets at just £10.
