Honeymoon is over
AMATEUR theatre group The Patesian Players return to Cheltenham's Playhouse Theatre to stage a Noël Coward classic next week.
Written in 1930, comedy Private Lives follows a divorced couple, who, five years after the end of their volatile marriage, realise they are both honeymooning at the same hotel with their new spouses, where they discover they still have feelings for each other. Revived more than six times on the West End and Broadway, the play remains popular to this day.
First-time producer Amber Smith said that director and chairman of the society, Rory O'Sullivan was great fun and the cast of five were relishing the production.
"He's always eager to have the actors contributing ideas and getting involved with the production," Amber said.

"But he always maintains a clear vision of how he wants it to turn out."
Rory, known for his work on productions at Pate's Grammar School, formed the society after his recent retirement from teaching drama.
Familiar with the talent at the school, he reached out to a group of Pate's alumni who had worked on productions with him in the past and brought them together.
Performances takes place at 7.45pm each night, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
