Set against the lush and steamy background of sub-tropical Mexico, this is the story of a conflicted defrocked minister and the women who fight for his body and soul. Reduced to working as a two-bit tour guide, besieged by inner demons, the man struggles to hang on to his dignity. A tale of lust, love, and redemption, told by the great American playmaster.

In this satirical and slickly sophisticated comedic classic, the antics and indiscretions of Elyot and Amanda Chase, formerly married to each other, both now newly-wed (to others!), transport us to the fashionable world of the rich and idle during the late 1920s.; Tempers flare, sparks erupt, heads are lost, barbs and arrows fly, hearts are set adrift ... onetime spouses spinning in a whirlwind of love and hate. In this delicious take on marital passions ... battle lines are drawn, and combat, both verbal and physical, turns to wicked farce. An enduring favorite from the acknowledged master of the quip, Private Lives gives fresh meaning to ‘over-the-top’.
Noël Coward (1899-1973) rose from modest circumstances to become one of England’s foremost playwrights, renowned for his wit, flamboyance, and a consummate sense of personal style. He published more than fifty plays, many of which are seen regularly in the theatrical repertoire, and also composed hundreds of songs and well over a dozen musical theatre works. The first Broadway production of Private Lives, in which Coward himself co-starred along with musical theatre legend Gertrude Lawrence, ran for 236 performances in 1931. Over the years that play has enjoyed no less than six New York productions, the most recent of which in 2002 was awarded the Tony for Best Revival of a Play. A symposium held in 1999 to mark the centenary of his birth listed no less than a dozen of his plays scheduled for production that year in Britain and North America. In one tribute, Tim Rice said of Coward: "[His] wit and wisdom will be as lively and contemporary in 100 years' time as they are today".

"Every now and then you get really lucky, and you see something that reminds you why you go to the theatre ... I urge you to see this show." (Michael Schwartz, STAGE Magazine)Stranded in a seedy hotel somewhere in the interior of Africa, a vacationing African-American couple experiences an unforeseen turn of events. A romanticized journey to their roots detours into a bizarre adventure. An insightful and witty story reflecting on the inescapable connection between the personal and the political.
