Cause Celebre Summary

Cause Celebre by Terence Rattigan

Terence Rattigan

Characters: 15 male, 5 female, 1 boy

Unit set.

A woman on trial with her 20 years younger lover for the murder of her husband creates the title drama in this incendiary recreation of the infamous case of Alma Rattenbury and 18 year-old George Percy Stoner. In 1935, when accused of murdering her husband in their Bournemouth home, the headlines created an early tabloid sensation as woman and boy both take the blame, while sexual freedom is cast in sharp relief against the the stifling morality of post-Victorian England. From the celebrated author of Separate Tables and The Browning Version, Cause Celebre will be revived at London's Old Vic in Spring 2011.

"No one alive writes with such understanding of sexual love or with such profound pity for its victims."-Daily Telegraph, London
