A genteel hotel in Bournemouth is the location for ‘Separate Tables’ which features two linked plays, is undoubtedly Terence Rattigan’s finest work and demonstrates his art of characterisation.
At table one sits a down-at-heel journalist is confronted by his ex-wife who provoked him to a violent act that ruined him. Still loving each other they nevertheless go through another terrible scene as they seek to repair their broken lives.
In table two, a bogus army Major without the background he claims and a neurotic girl with a ruthless domineering mother are attracted to each other. A sordid scandal threatens to drive them apart, but when all seems lost Miss Cooper comes to the rescue.
All & Sundry’s production is faithful to the original plot which was considered too much for 1950’s taste at the time this wonderful drama was written.
