There are only two things wrong with Amanda and Elyot’s honeymoon. Her husband and his wife. Once explosively wedded to each other, now quite happily divorced, Amanda and Elyot find themselves trapped in adjoining hotel suites – where they both happen to be honeymooning with their new spouses.

They’re about to remember the depth of their desperate, destructive love. How simply ripping.

Following on from his wild contemporary makeover of Moliere in 2011, Shane Bosher takes on Noël Coward’s insatiable, slap-happy comedy of coruscating wit and bad manners. A dirty martini of well-bred petulance and jagged sophistication, this revisionist treatment promises to be sexy as hell. Expect love, lust and cosmopolitan fatigue.

This is the original rom-com.

Extraordinary how potent cheap music is.

Amanda

Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs.

Elyot

Kiss me, darling, before your body rots, and worms pop in and out of your eye sockets.
