description:

1930. Deauville, France. Two newly-married couples occupy adjoining honeymoon suites in the same hotel. As a distant orchestra plays, Sibyl gazes adoringly at charismatic husband Elyot, while Victor admires his new wife, the vivacious and sophisticated Amanda. Champagne flows and the sea shimmers in the moonlight as the newlyweds prepare for the evening ahead. But when Amanda overhears a familiar voice singing a forgotten song, an old spark reignites, with spectacular consequences.


CAST DETAILS:
ELYOT CHASE
Male 30
Large Role

A handsome, thirtyish man.

AMANDA PRYNNE
Female 30
Large Role

Elyot’s first wife, newly married to Victor Prynne. She is the most vivacious character in the work. She is not only beautiful but also spirited, independent, and unconventional—a fit partner for Elyot.

SIBYL CHASE
Female 23
Large Role

Elyot’s blonde, attractive, twenty-three-year-old bride. Conventional, unimaginative, and innocent, she is Amanda’s antithesis and suggests the playwright’s dim view of the “nice” English girl.

VICTOR PRYNNE
Male 40
Large Role

A handsome man a few years older than Elyot. Stuffy and stodgy, he lacks a sense of humor.

LOUISE
Female
Medium Role

Amanda’s French-speaking maid. Her inability to speak English and her incomprehension of the bizarre occurrences in the apartment provide a number of laughs.
