Private Lives and Public Process
We went to go see Keyano Theatre Company's production of Noel Coward's Private Lives on Saturday. A play that peels back the fourth wall and allows us to get a very personal (and hysterical) look into the lives of star-crossed lovers, ex-lovers, and lovers reconnected. It was Dylan's first evening out in quite some time as he was on weekend leave from his rehabilitation at the Glenrose Hospital in Edmonton. He roared with laughter at the physical comedy of lead actor Misha Albert playing the part of Elyot, and the Kate Hepburnesque performance of our dear friend Tiffany Bishop in the role of Amanda. The two younger thespians playing Sybil and Victor offered exceptionally strong performances as did the young Spanish maid whose short several minutes on the stage were unforgettable. In my mind, it was one of the best comedies on the Keyano stage in the past 15 years. I'd have to go back to It Runs in the Family (written by Ray Cooney) in 1996 to recall an evening of theatre as delightful, although the musical Nunsense came close about eight years ago.
