Private Lives
Written by Noel Coward

Amanda and Elyot have divorced and both have recently re-married. Both newly-wed couples go on their respective honeymoons, only to find they are occupying adjacent hotel suites. In this setting, Amanda and Elyot rediscover their romance, and the plot goes full circle in the course of much robust Coward wit and banter.
