Directed by Emma Weinstein. British divorcees Elyot and Amanda unwittingly book adjoining rooms while honeymooning with their new spouses. Realizing a pair of mismatched marriages, Elyot and Amanda flee their unsuspecting spouses and resume their romance in Amanda’s secluded Paris flat, only to be discovered several days later by their jilted lovers. The comedy of manners lampoons the hypocrisies and pretensions of modern marriage as Elyot and Amanda seek true love regardless of the cost. The 1930 production of Private Lives is considered one of the enduring successes of modern comedic theatre. Thursday, April 26 is dollar night for Smith students.
