-Cause Celebre - OLD EVENT

By Terence Rattigan

What chance for justice when the public wants its pound of flesh?


Terence Rattigan's final play is based on the true story of Alma Rattenbury, who in 1935 stood trial with her 18 year old lover for the murder of her older husband. Her counterpoint is the fictional Edith Davenport, steely chairwoman of the jury, whose own life echoes a tale of love, betrayal, guilt and tumultuous passions that must be repressed.
