SOUTH PORTLAND — The Portland Players will perform “Private Lives,” an intimate comedy written by celebrated English playwright, composer, director and actor Noël Coward.

“Private Lives” is the hilarious story of a divorced couple, who, while honeymooning with their new spouses, discover they are staying in adjacent rooms at the same hotel. Despite their turbulent relationship, they realize they still have feelings for each other.
