Description

One of Coward's best-loved classics in a single-play edition Coward's wit and precision as a modern dramatist is nowhere better exemplified than in this classic modern plays from 1930.

Elyot Chase and Amanda Prynne (originally played by Gertrude Lawrence and Noel Coward), recently divorced from one another five years previously, arrive coincidentally at the same French hotel.

They are honeymooning with their respective new spouses.

Encountering one another by chance, each is at once horrified and fascinated by the other.

Together they leave for Paris and begin a roundelay of quarrels and love intrigues that culminate in their getting back together.
