... that comes to mind for ninety-nine out of a hundred people when they hear the name Coward is Private Lives, arguably the most revived of all his plays and who every actor and actress has seemingly had a stab at though none have ever come near to Coward himself and the actress for whom he wrote it and co-starred with in the original production, Gertrude Lawrence. As I've said before and will no doubt say again the majority of Coward plays are actor-proof in the sense that they are so well- constructed and studded with quotable lines, having said that Alec McGowan is not an actor that springs to mind when thinking in terms of casting Elyiot Chase and though he does his best he is woefully short of most other actors. Penelope Keith fares a little better though lacks the sexuality that Amanda needs to exude. Keith is much more successful as a comedienne than a love object. Of the two feeds the less said the better which means that all we have left is the dazzling script; I've given it a seven for the script alone, with decent actors as the two leads this would rise easily to a ten.
