The Chichester Festival production of Noel Coward's Private Lives, transfers to London's Gielgud Theatre, from 22 June 2013, running to 21 Sep 2013.
Directed by Jonathan Kent and designed by Anthony Ward, the play transfers with original cast members Toby Stephens (Elyot Chase), Anna Chancellor (Amanda Prynne), Anthony Calf (Victor Prynne), Anna-Louise Plowman (Sibyl Chase).
Elyot and Amanda, glamorous, rich and reckless, are divorced. Five years later, they meet again on the adjoining balconies of a Riviera hotel. Each is on honeymoon.
