‘Private Lives’ – Noel Coward’s Comedy of Manners

1930. Deauville, France. After a tumultuous and fiery marriage the divorced couple, Elyot & Amanda, find themselves in adjacent suites while honeymooning with their new partners – Sybil & Victor respectively. The view from their adjoining balconies is all shimmering sea and moonlight. So romantic! And when Amanda overhears a familiar voice singing Some Day I’ll Find You, old passions reignite and the estranged lovers run away together to Paris to flirt and fight repeatedly before being tracked down by their jilted spouses – with explosive and hilarious consequences.

Since its opening at London’s Phoenix Theatre in August 1930, Private Lives has retained its remarkable appeal, captivating audiences worldwide. After his huge success at The Mill with BLITHE SPIRIT, The Mill is delighted to welcome back Tam Williams to direct another of Noël Coward’s glittering comedies . Together with their clever and talented production team he is guaranteed to give you an elegant and glamorous evening in the theatre, full of razor sharp wit, bubbling with sex and promises like a glass of sparkling vintage champagne.

About The Mill

Set majestically on the banks of the River Thames, the Mill at Sonning TheaSonning Milltre now celebrates more than 30 years of entertainment. Uniquely, as the only dinner theatre in the United Kingdom, it has gained unrivalled praise both nationally and internationally.

Directors, designers, actors, musicians, of the highest quality help maintain its exceptional reputation. Many new plays premiere here from established to young up-and-coming writers. All productions are created on the premises. Nothing is ‘brought in’. Rehearsal rooms buzz with activity. Sets are built in our workshop. Costumes designed and made in our wardrobe. In our kitchens, fresh food is prepared daily. And we proudly say “with not a microwave in sight”.

The intimate theatre seats 215 in the semi-round allowing the audience to feel involved in the performance. The elegant restaurant, separate from the theatre but within the premises, with views over the sparkling Thames has the friendliest young staff of waiters and waitresses. A spinning waterwheel features in the cosy bar.

The Mill is completely self-sufficient. No sponsors, no grants – not a penny of tax-payers’ money supports us. We live on your patronage at our box office.

The atmosphere is welcoming. The setting beautiful. The standards are high.

The cost of this event includes luxury coach transport, your three course Sunday Lunch with tea/coffee, a show programme,  your ticket for the show and, of course, treats.
