--------------------------------------

Elyot (Toby Stephens) and Amanda (Anna Chancellor) are glamorous, rich, reckless . . .  and divorced. Five years later, their love for one another is unexpectedly rekindled when they take adjoining suites of a Riviera hotel while honeymooning with their new spouses, Victor (Anthony Calf) and Sibyl (Anna-Louise Plowman). This chance encounter instantly reignites their passion, and they fling themselves headlong into a whirlwind of love and lust once more, without a thought for partners present or turbulences past.

Following a sell-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, this much-anticipated transfer is set to blaze across the West End stage this summer in an explosive production that proves Noël Coward still has the power to thrill, provoke and delight.
