- Play Club - Private LivesPlay Club - Private Lives
by Noël Coward
Monday 27 February, 7pm
THE PLAY: PRIVATE LIVES is one of the most sophisticated, entertaining plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed. A uniquely humorous play boasting numerous successful Broadway runs boasting such as stars Coward himself, Laurence Olivier, Tallulah Bankhead, Gertrude Lawrence, Tammy Grimes, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.
ABOUT US: Since 2012, Play Club has aspired to inspire community among top theatre and film makers and their audiences, introducing the ultimate behind-the-scenes look into the creative process at the ground-floor of a play. For actors, it’s a chance once-a-month to dive into the world’s leading scripts and, as the name suggests, play. For drama students and audience, it’s a chance to see where it all begins and to be part of the process. Simply put, it is not a performance as we would traditionally know it, but merely the beginnings. And it all happens exclusively for one night. It is all driven by a simple vision: to break down walls and create dialogue surrounding the industry. PRIVATE LIVES marks Play Club’s 45th reading; currently home in Johannesburg, Cape Town and now our newest city Durban, with over 1 000 actors, producers, drama students and their audience coming through our doors since our establishment; truly, South Africa’s most inspiring community.
Space is strictly limited!
