This follows the screenings of the Menier Chocolate Factory's West End transfer of Merrily We Roll Along at cinemas in London and New York in October.
Jonathan Kent's productin of Private Lives starred Toby Stephens and Anna Chancellor, and played in the West End June 22-Sept. 21, 2013, wher it was produced by CFT Enterprises, Old Vic Productions, Duncan C. Weldon and APT Productions.
In the play, Elyot Chase (Stephens) and Amanda Prynne (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 French hotel while honeymooning with their new spouses. 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.
The cast also includes Anthony Calf as Victor Prynne, Anna-Louise Plowman as Sibyl Chase and Sue Kelvin as Louise. The production is designed by Anthony Ward, with lighting by Mark Henderson, sound by Paul Groothuis and music by Matthew Scott.
In a press statement, Robert Delamere, co-founder and CEO of Digital Theatre commented, "To be working once again with CinemaLive in bringing a second hit West End show to cinemas around the world is thrilling. Chichester Festival Theatre's production of Noël Coward's classic comedy is outstanding, and Toby Stephens and Anna Chancellor's superb performances have been rightly lauded. Following the huge success of the first production in our West End Theatre Series, Maria Friedman's award-winning production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Merrily We Roll Along, we look forward to further expanding the series, and extending the reach of the very best of British theatre to a global audience."
