About this show

Private Lives, Noel Coward's most celebrated comedy, sets two newlyweds -- who are former lovers -- on adjoining terraces during their respective honeymoons in the resort town of Deauville, France. New love is no match for the fireworks of their past relationship as verbal sparring and comedic dexterity begin to flash and spark. Coward is at his best in this brilliant examination of what is public and what is private and to what is past and what is present. Private Lives performs on the McGuire Proscenium Stage, and is directed by Peter Rothstein.
