Private Lives

25 January — 8 March 2014

Event Passed

We kick off the year with Noël Coward’s best-known comedy – as effervescent as freshly poured champagne on a hot summer’s night.

Elyot and Sybil are honeymooning in France and life couldn’t be more perfect. In the adjoining hotel room Amanda and Victor are delighting in their own postnuptial bliss. The fact that Elyot and Amanda were once married to each other isn’t such a big deal. That is, until the two couples meet and honeymoon rapture comes to a grinding halt.

Coward’s plot-perfect marital farce is sparklingly witty and wickedly vicious. MTC Associate Artistic Director Sam Strong’s daring new production, featuring musical theatre star Lucy Durack together with Leon Ford, Julie Forsyth, Nadine Garner and John Leary promises to be a highlight of 2014.
