Paul Scofield and Patricia Routledge star in Noël Coward's classic comedy of manners. Private Lives was written in 1930 and has been a mainstay of British theatre ever since.

This sharply funny play of reversals focuses on Elyot and Amanda, a passionate but feuding couple who divorced five years before. Now, on the first night of their honeymoons with their new partners, they find that they are all staying in the same hotel on the French Riviera. Fireworks are inevitable....

The roles of the two ex-spouses are brilliantly recreated by Paul Scofield and Patricia Routledge, while Coward's scintillating repartee epitomises all the glamour and sophistication of life between the wars for society's spoilt darlings.

The Classic Radio Theatre range presents notable radio productions of much-loved plays by some of the most renowned playwrights, and starring some of our finest actors.

    " I really enjoyed this book- although I didn't find it quite as funny as some have led me to believe. Entertaining, true, but certainly not laugh-out-loud humor, it was a bit too dark for that in my opinion. However, it was quick and fun and worth a good review. "

    " It indulges the idea that people who are passionate about one another bring out the best and worst in the other. Simply untrue and the characters are annoying and spoiled. "

    " This is a classic - pure genius. The sort of play that provokes stares on the train when one starts to giggle as it unfolds. There's just something gleeful about Coward at his best. "

    " Read this + Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf back-to-back and you'll never fall innocently in love again. "
