In Terence Rattigan’s classic drama, an embittered, aging schoolmaster begins to feel that his has been a failure. Diminished by poor health, a crumbling marriage, and the derision of his pupils, the once brilliant scholar is compelled to reexamine his life when a young student offers an unexpected gesture of kindness.

This recording includes an interview with Michael Darlow, the author of Terence Rattigan: The Man and His Work. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Steven Brand, Martin Jarvis, Ian Ogilvy, Darren Richardson, Devon Sorvari, Kate Steele, and Daniel Stewart.

About the Author

Terence Rattigan (1911–1977) was a twentieth century English dramatist. Born in London, the son of a career diplomat, Rattigan was of upper-class Irish descent, with renowned scholars and intellects on both sides of his family. Drawn to plays and the theater form from an early age, Rattigan rose to fame at age 25 with his play, French Without Tears. Rattigan was most successful during the decade following World War II and is most known for such works as The Winslow Boy, The Browning Version, The Deep Blue Sea, and Separate Tables, among many others.
