Falmouth's King Charles Mummers, who are now in their 77th year, will be taking to the stage with their autumn production early next month.

The group have chosen the ever popular Noel Coward play Private Lives which is being directed by Mike Stevenson and will be staged on November 2, 3 and 4. The cast is made up of Jane Stevenson, David Quinn, Robert Edney and Jodie Merrifield.

Set in the 1930s, an era of sophistication and style. This play has all these attributes, beautifully written by Noel Coward, capturing the angst, laughter and emotion as only he could. It opens to a divorced couple who, while honeymooning with their new spouses, discover that they are staying in adjacent rooms at the same hotel. Despite a perpetually stormy relationship, they realise that they still have feelings for each other.

When the play first opened in 1930, the second act love scene was almost censored as deemed to risqué. As the play evolves, the audiences are taken on a moving journey.

Private Lives will be performed at the King Charles Theatre in New Street, Falmouth, from 7.30pm each night. Tickets cost £7 and are available from The Cornish Store in Arwenack Street, 01326 315514.
