Private Lives, Noël Coward’s most popular and enduring stage comedy, comes to Malvern Theatres on Tuesday, September 6.

It's a drama in which strong passions and stronger personalities set the stage for a classic battle of the sexes. 1930. The South of France. Two newly-married couples occupy adjoining honeymoon suites in the same hotel. As a distant orchestra plays, Sibyl gazes adoringly at charismatic husband Elyot, while Victor admires his new wife, the vivacious and sophisticated Amanda.

Champagne flows and the sea shimmers in the moonlight as the newly weds prepare for the evening ahead. But when Amanda overhears a familiar voice singing a forgotten song, an old spark reignites, with spectacular consequences.

Full of razor-sharp wit and quick-fire dialogue, Private Lives has retained its remarkable appeal since its opening at London’s Phoenix Theatre in August 1930, captivating audiences worldwide.

Private Lives will be at Malvern Theatres from Wednesday, September 6 to Saturday, September 9. To book, call the box office on 01684 892277 or visit Ticket price includes a £1 contribution to our heritage fund.
