NOEL COWARD'S PRIVATE LIVES
1931.The Parisienne Riviera. A moonlit night. A sparkling sea. Two starcrossed lovers--once married--are reunited whilst honeymooning at the same hotel with their new spouses. The encounter is cataclysmic and the ripple effect chaotic. Our production of this "jewel in the crown" piece by celebrated British playwright, Noel Coward features NTC's talented husband and wife team, Rosemary Dartnell and Richard Murray in the roles of Amanda and Elyot. They are joined by the delightful Dale Raftery as Sibyl and the debonair Carl Gregory as Victor. In the cameo role of Louise we have the multilingual Carol Hong. The production is directed by Barbara Delaney (Shadowlands, Hotel Sorrento). David Murray as Assistant Director makes his NTC directorial debut.
This winter break out your cigarette holders, furs, patent dancing pumps and champagne magnums and foxtrot over to NTC to lose yourself in the rapier -sharp, witty, dialogue, the comedy, the song, the dance and the romance that is Noel Coward's inimitable work, "Private Lives."
