It’s no great surprise that Noël Coward saved his zestiest zingers and sharpest one-liners for Private Lives— he always intended to star in the comedic masterpiece himself. His greed is your gain as Private Lives ranks as one of the most savagely funny plays ever written. Elyot and his ex-wife Amanda can’t live with or without each other, which makes things a bit sticky when they find themselves honeymooning in the same hotel — each with a new, younger spouse. While their puzzled new partners try to cope, the two fall in love (and come to blows) all over again.
