Review: Witty comedy is a winner (Private Lives, Peterborough Key Theatre, until Nov 15)
Charging downstage actress Olivia Beardsley as Sybil aimed a slap like a pistol shot at the cheek of Victor played by Kieran Buckeridge. Whereupon he did the only thing possible, seizing her in his arms and kissing her passionately. A kiss which she returned with equal fervour. The lights went down, the house lights came up, and Noel Coward’s Private Lives reached its inevitable conclusion.
