Hovey Players finishes its 75th Season with Private Lives, Noel Coward’s classic comedy, directed by Ronni Marshak and produced by Sara Jones. Performances are May 13 to 28, 2011 at the Abbott Memorial Theater, 9 Spring Street at Joel’s Way in Waltham, Mass., located next to the Waltham Public Library.
