An explosive production that proves Noel Coward still has the power to thrill

Elyot and Amanda are glamorous, rich, reckless . . .  and divorced.

Five years later, their love or one another is unexpectedly rekindled when they take adjoining suites of a Riviera 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.
