Noël Coward’s finest comedyThe Independent
Elyot and Amanda, who were once married, find themselves on honeymoon with their new partners, admiring the view from adjoining balconies in the same hotel on the French Riviera. Their initial horror quickly evaporates and soon they are sharing cocktails. Who knows what the future holds for them now...
The Olivier Award-winning Patricia Hodge, one of the country’s most loved actresses – last seen at Chichester in Travels with My Aunt (2016) and Copenhagen (2018) – plays Amanda. The ever suave and charming Nigel Havers plays Elyot, the role taken by Noël Coward himself in the original production in 1930.
This new production is directed by Christopher Luscombe, whose work at Chichester includes Love’s Labour’s Lost, Much Ado About Nothing and Travels With My Aunt (2016).
