Our next play is Table by the Window by English playwright Terrence Rattigan. Educated at Harrow, Terrence Rattigan was knighted in 1971 for services to the theatre. His plays V.I.P's and The Yellow Rolls Royce are among others made into successful films. For a time Rattigan was the highest paid screen writer in the world.
Table 1: Table By The Window, one of two one act plays in the well known production Separate Tables, focuses on the troubled relationship between a disgraced politician now turned to drink and his wife. Both plays are about people who are driven by loneliness into a state of desperation. It appears then to be a real contrast to Calendar girls. We look forward to the challenge and discussion.
