HAMPTON HILL THEATRE

CAUSE CELEBRE by Terence Rattigan
Tickets £12 each - (Normally £16 each)
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.

THE MARY WALLACE THEATRE
The Embankment, Twickenham, TW1 3DU
THE DUCHESS OF MALFI by John Webster
Tickets £10 each - (Normally £13 each)
Webster’s stunning tragedy explores class and gender inequality, misogyny, madness and murder in a High Renaissance court. Recent exposes of toxic masculinity by the #MeToo movement provide one of the many contemporary resonances of the play. This adaptation transports the drama to a powerful ‘Mafia’ family, set against the backdrop of a 1960s Italian film studio and the Vatican.
For both plays we will meet in the bar from 7.15 pm. to give you seat numbers
