By Terence Rattigan
24 October 2015 - 13 January 2016
In this rarely seen comic gem, a classical theatre company attempts to produce The Winter's Tale and Romeo and Juliet, while the intrigues and dalliances of the company members are accidently revealed with increasingly chaotic and hysterical consequences.
The behind-the-scenes world takes centre stage in Terence Rattigan's affectionate celebration of the lunatic art of putting on a play.
Kenneth Branagh will be joined by Zoë Wanamaker and will co-direct with Rob Ashford.
ZOË WANAMAKER WILL PERFORM RATTIGAN’S ONE-WOMAN PLAY, ALL ON HER OWN, PRIOR TO HARLEQUINADE EACH NIGHT, AS PART OF A NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN DOUBLE BILL.
ALL ON HER OWN
by TERENCE RATTIGAN
Cast includes ZOË WANAMAKER
In this brief but powerfully atmospheric play, a woman with a secret, alone at midnight in London has a burden to share that is at times both heart-breaking and sinister. This never-before-seen double bill celebrates the contrast in Rattigan’s astonishing range.
Harlequinade / All On Her Own Reviews:
'This Terence Rattigan double bill is a sparkling opening to the season.
Branagh is genuinely fantastic... a great comic'
'Wanamaker is devastatingly good'
'A terrific comic turn'
