Yesterday evening the Corpus Playroom main show Private Lives had their dress rehearsal. The team had managed to have their get in, tech rehearsal and dress rehearsal all in one day. Pretty impressive.
‘That was the trouble with Elyot and me, we were like two violent acids bubbling about in a nasty little matrimonial bottle’
Private Lives is a thrilling and witty comedy not to be missed. A divorced couple, Elyot and Amanda, are each on honeymoon with their new spouses, Sybil and Victor. When Elyot and Amanda notice they are honeymooning in adjacent apartments, they realise that they still love each other and decide to run away together. Initially their affair seems to be going well, but with wits as strong as theirs arguments quickly ensue. It is only a matter of time before Sybil and Victor turn up..
Here are a few of the photos from the evening rehearsal.
The show premiers on Tuesday! Make sure to check it out! Will and Beth have a brilliant fight scene choreographed by Robbie Taylor Hunt. You can find tickets on the Corpus webpage.
Many thanks to the cast and crew for a fun evening!
