Hampton Hill Theatre: Main Auditorium
“Impressive performances across the board”
“Hard hitting and dramatic – lots of surprises, especially at the end”
“The set was so realistic, I thought it looked like a permanent part of the theatre”

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.
