Private Lives, Locked Down

Rob Grant, Paul Jackson and Ed Bye bring you another exclusive all-star performance.

4 September, 2020

By now it can't have escaped your attention that Quarantine Commentaries are back this weekend, but what you may not know is that Rob Grant, Paul Jackson and Ed Bye have been busy producing another project; a very special one-off online event in association with The Royal Theatrical Fund - Noël Coward's Private Lives - Act One, followed by a live Q&A with the cast and director.

And it's even got the Mother of Dragons in it!

Private Lives, Locked Down

Taking a departure from our usual Sunday night ritual of Armpit Name That Tune and Guess Whose Botty is Sticking Through a Hole in the Curtain, this star-studded extravaganza featuring Robert Lindsay, Emma Thompson, Emilia Clarke and Sanjeev Bhaskar promises to make Sunday the 13th of September a night to remember.

Lockdown Theatre's previous production, A Bit of Waiting For Godot, raised over £35,000 for the RTF, and we're hoping to do even better with Private Lives; a play which follows Amanda and Elyot, a divorced couple who unwittingly meet on separate honeymoons in a hotel in Deauville, each with their respective new spouse. Taking us on a journey through passion, laughter and romance, Private Lives is a romantic comedy that will delight theatre-lovers the world over. It premiered at the new Phoenix Theatre in the West End in 1930, and over many years and revivals has garnered dozens of theatrical honours, including three Oliver awards and four Tonys.

You don't get that from a night of Junior Angler.

And remember, this event is for one night only. It will not be repeated, it will not be recorded, and there is only one place to see it - your house. So, what are you waiting for? Sparkling humour, an all-star cast, exclusive Q&As and a backstage pass to one of the most exciting theatrical events of the year. And it was even written by that guy from Meltdown. Tickets are selling fast, and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Tickets are £35 and you can get them here. If you want to make a donation to the RTF, you can do so by visiting JustGiving.
