Award Winning 'Shooting Stars Theatre Company' come to Cressing Temple Barns with an open air production of Noel Coward's 'Private Lives'.

“I think very few people are completely normal really deep down in their private lives.”

'Private Lives', Noël Coward’s classic comedy of passion, romance, anger, laughter and love... The stage is set for a battle of the sexes when divorced couple, Amanda and Elyot, find themselves unwittingly thrown together again.

Bring a picnic, a blanket (an emergency umbrella- just in case!) and enjoy open air theatre this summer in the beautiful surroundings of the historic Cressing Temple Barns.
