Noel Coward play opens Little Theatre year

Woy Woy Little Theatre will present its first production for the year with Noel Coward's Private Lives opening on February 22 at Peninsula Theatre for a three-week season.

Director Ms Jan Grounds said razor sharp wit and verbal sparring would be the order of the day in this play which sees a divorced couple find themselves in adjoining hotel rooms in France, each with a new spouse in tow.

"This is probably Noel Coward's most perfect and performed play," Ms Grounds said.

"It was written in 1930 in just a few days and, after almost 90 years, it still has a lot to offer, as the characters are so well drawn and the language is deliciously clever and amusing.

"I have loved Noel Coward's work for such a long time that to direct this play is such a gift.

"Several years ago, I was assistant director and stage manager for Woy Woy Little Theatre's Hay Fever, so doing another of Noel Coward's plays seemed an opportunity not to be missed," she said.

The play has a strong cast comprising some of the group's best-known performers.

Ms Kellie Martin (last seen in Sylvia) and Mr Thomas Unger (last seen in Baskerville) are the divorced couple, with Mr Clayton Williamson (also last seen in Baskerville) and Ms Rebecca Bright (last seen in the 2018 Flash Festival) as their respective new spouses.

Completing the cast is Ms Kirsty Bolton, a newcomer to the Woy Woy Little Theatre stage, as the maid.

"Having such a talented strong cast meant that the language, fun and utter madness of Private Lives could be showcased," Ms Grounds said.
