Elyot and Amanda; glamorous, rich, reckless… and divorced. A surprise encounter on adjoining hotel balconies rekindles their passion and they fling themselves violently into love once more, and their newly married lives into chaos.

As well as Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse Michael Longhurst directing, the creative team behind the production includes: designs by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting design by Jack Knowles and casting director Anna Cooper.

Michael Longhurst said: “I am beyond thrilled to be honouring the 50th anniversary of Coward’s death by reviving his most famous work Private Lives in the fierce intimacy of the Donmar.”
