A Play & A Piece: The Browning Version by Terrence Rattigan (1948)
Pop down to CatStrand for a play and a piece.
Lunchtime theatre with a sandwich and a hot or cold drink included in the ticket price.
Rapture presents a timeless masterpiece of love and regret and the human capacity for change. The Browning Version is set after the Second World War, at a boys’ public school and on the eve of Greek Classics teacher, Andrew Crocker Harris’, retirement.
The “Crock” is humiliated by his headmaster, mocked by his pupils and cuckolded by his cruel and disappointed wife. But one small act of kindness, from an unexpected source is about to revive the desiccated “Crock’s “ shattered life.
Moving, humorous and displaying a profound understanding of the human heart, only those made of steel will be able to sit through this play dry-eyed.
One act plays lasting 30-55 minutes. Recommended for ages 12+
