Chester Theatre Club’s new season at Chester Little Theatre
contributed by Paul Crofts
The curtain is set is rise on Chester Theatre Club’s new season at Chester Little Theatre with the staging of Noel Coward’s sparklingly witty 1930’s comedy “Private Lives” which runs at the Gloucester Street theatre from 19th – 26th September.
Set in the Art Deco glamour of the 30’s, “Private Lives” follows the difficult relationship of divorced couple Elyot and Amanda, who, while honeymooning with their new spouses, discover that they are staying in adjacent rooms at the same hotel in the South of France. Cue Elyot and Amanda falling in love – and in hate – all over again as their bewildered new spouses Sibyl and Victor try to cope. Love is complicated! Full of razor sharp wit it is one of Coward’s enduring comedies. Making her directing debut with the group is Penny Morris. No stranger to Chester/Wirral audiences, Penny has been involved in theatre for over 40 years, and had completed several professional voice over advertisements for the Red Cross and the tourism industry.
