A new revival of Noel Coward’s Private Lives will embark on a major new UK tour, prior to opening in the West End it has been announced.
Directed by Tom Attenborough, this new production of Coward’s classic comedy will star Tom Chambers (Top Hat, Strictly Come Dancing), Laura Rogers (Tipping the Velvet, An Ideal Husband), Charlotte Ritchie (Call the Midwife) and Richard Teverson (Downtown Abbey).
The tour will open at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking on the 15th January and finishes at the Theatre Royal in Bath on the 19th March.
Written in just three days, Noel Coward’s Private Lives remains to this day to be his greatest success as a play that marked the peak of his career.
Elyot and Amanda are a glamorous and selfish divorced couple who meet by coincidence while on honeymoon with their new spouses – reigniting the sparks between them. The revival of their romance is a reminder for them both that although they can live without each other, neither can they live without each other.
A sharp piece of 1930’s comedy, Private Lives is a sophisticated and entertaining play that offers audiences a truly glamorous evening of entertainment.
Other venues that the production will be visiting on this tour include: Churchill Theatre, Bromley (18-23 January), Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent (25-30 January), Theatre Royal, Brighton (1-6 February), New Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham (8-13 February), Richmond Theatre (15-20 February), Theatre Royal, Glasgow (22-27 February), Princess Theatre, Torquay (29 February – 5 March), Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury (7-12 March) and Theatre Royal, Bath (14-19 March).
Private Lives will feature designs by Lucy Osborne, lighting by Oliver Fenwick and sound by Gregory Clarke.
