Separate Tables

by Terence Rattigan

17 - 22  June 2024

A classic story of repressed feelings and unhappy pasts

These two one act plays work well together to create a snapshot of life.

The first looks at relationship between a journalist and his wife in the Beauregard private hotel in 1955.

The second is set 18 months later when a repressed young spinster offers friendship and moral support to a man posing as a retired army Major when a truth about him is exposed.

With surprisingly modern themes and storylines, Rattigan's play explores how loneliness can lead to desperation, as relevant today as when it was written.
