“Exquisitely droll, this is an evening of theatre at its very best.” - NETheatre


Divorced couple Elyot and Amanda find themselves reunited while honeymooning with their new partners. Their unexpected meeting on adjoining hotel balconies reignites old passions … and problems! Only days after finding each other again, their fiery romance is once more lurching between love and anger. And when their wronged spouses appear, accusations are hurled, truths revealed and new alliances form.

This classic comedy of manners is packed with Coward’s trademark wit and wordplay. A sublimely funny and high-spirited romp that fizzes with sophistication, fun and sexual chemistry!
