Private Lives in public at Mary Baldwin University

March 23, 2006

Mary Baldwin University Theatre presents one of Noel Coward’s best known comedies.Private Lives, April 5–9, is set in the 1930s and is packed with his classic style and wit.

Elyot and Sibyl Chase, portrayed by Darren Ralston and Betsy Shortt, are on their honeymoon. In the adjoining suite are newlyweds Victor and Amanda Prynne, played by Michael Lafferty and Molly Starks. The trouble is Elyot and Amanda were once married, and the old smoldering flame needs only a spark to reignite. Shae Armstrong completes the cast as Louise, the French maid.

The public is invited Wednesday-Saturday, April 5–8 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 9 at 2 p.m. at the college’s Fletcher Collins Theatre. Tickets may be purchased at the box office Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. or reserved by credit card by calling (540) 887-7189 during regular box office hours.
