Noel Coward's Private Lives at Crewe Lyceum

Noel Coward’s comedy classic production ‘Private Lives’ is coming to Crewe Lyceum in April for two nights.

London Classic Theatre has announced additional dates for their production currently on an extensive UK tour.

Olivia Beardsley and Helen Keeley return to the production as Sibyl Chase and Amanda Prynne, and are joined by three new cast members, Gareth Bennett-Ryan (Elyot Chase), Paul Sandys (Victor Prynne) and Rachael Holmes-Brown (Louise).

Crewe Lyceum is among 16 venues to host the production, and it comes to South Cheshire on April 17 and 18.

Set in 1930 in Deauville, France, it tells the story of two newly-married couples who 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 newlyweds prepare for the evening ahead.

But when Amanda overhears a familiar voice singing a forgotten song, an old spark reignites, with spectacular consequences.

Private Lives is Noël Coward’s most popular and enduring stage comedy.

Written in only three days, it first opened at London’s Phoenix Theatre in August 1930 to packed houses.

Since then, this charming comedy of manners has retained its remarkable appeal, captivating audiences all over the world.

Noël Coward was one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th Century.

His most notable plays include Hay Fever, Design for Living, Present Laughter and Blithe Spirit.
