A new comedic play thrusting the lives of lovers’ quarrels into the spotlight will hit the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.
Noe?l Coward’s “Private Lives” will run January 28 to February 14 at the Tom Hendry Warehouse, showing beautiful people behaving badly.
Synopsis: Elyot Chase is happily divorced, but his newfound marital bliss is thrown for a loop when he and his new bride inadvertently find themselves spending their honeymoon in the suite adjoining his ex-wife Amanda and her new husband. As the old flame is rekindled, so is the venom that extinguished it in the first place. As only he can, Noe?l Coward creates characters whose sophistication, style and wit mask a delicious wickedness.
Private Lives stars Graham Ashmore as Victor Payne, Eric Blais as Elyot Chase, Laura Olafson as Amanda Payne, Tracy Penner as Sybil Chase and Jane Testar as Louise.
Tickets start at $20.48 plus GST and are available at the Royal MTC Box Office by calling (204) 942 6537 or online at royalmtc.ca.
Private Lives is Royal MTC’s contribution to the 2015 Master Playwright Festival, CowardFest.
