by Noël CowardDirector Carey Perloff
YOU CAN’T FIGHT LOVE – BUT IT’S FUN TO TRY
Divorced for five years, Elyot and Amanda are reunited by chance – while honeymooning with their new spouses. Succumbing to raging ex appeal, they run off together to Paris, only to discover all over again – hilariously – that there’s more than one way to drive each other crazy.
The wit of Noël Coward is at its cheekiest in this uproarious romantic comedy, set in a sophisticated world of cocktails, glamour and sparkling repartee.
