As fate would have it Amanda Prynne is also on honeymoon with her new husband, Victor. After a rather curt reunion, Elyot and Amanda seek out their new spouses demanding they leave with them immediately to prevent an embarrassing situation. When neither party agrees to leave, Elyot and Amanda are forced to face each other and soon realize they are still madly in love. Compacting to never quarrel again, the divorcees agree to abandon their new partners and slip away into the night leaving Sybil and Victor all alone.
A dazzling comedic masterpiece, Noel Coward's "Private Lives" is a whirlwind of love and lust, riches and recklessness. The play cleverly presents the characters pain and obsession by wrapping it up in elegance and wit.
Director Janet Groom has marshaled an all-star cast to present laughter this Fall. Paul Brinker and Christy Vogel thrilled audiences in last years "The Great American Trailer Park Musical"and promise to do so again as Elyot and Sybil Chase. Elisabeth Hazelton and Christopher Restino both gave powerful performances in "The Crucible" earlier this year plan to delight audiences as Amanda and Victor Prynne. Newcomer Karen Mailhot will be making her Dorset Players debut as the French maid, Louise.
