rom National Theatre to Cast: Top UK Theatres Stage Terence Rattigan

Terence Rattigan, one of England’s greatest playwrights, is enjoying a critically acclaimed revival across the UK, from the National Theatre to Chichester Festival Theatre and now Cast in Doncaster.

From Benedict Cumberbatch in Rattigan's After the Dance to Helen McCrory in the passionate revival of The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre.

Over at Chichester Festival Theatre, Joseph Fiennes first rate performance as TE Lawrence saved the day in Ratigan’s Ross. In the West End Zoë Wanamaker starred alongside Kenneth Branagh in Rattigan’s rarely seen comic gem Harlequinade.

The much-beloved Sheridan Smith and Sienna Miller moved audiences in Rattigan's Flare Path at Theatre Royal Haymarket while Anne Marie-Duff gave an electrifying performance in Rattigan's final satire Cause Célèbre at the Old Vic Theatre

Now Rattigan’s first smash-hit comedy, French Without Tears comes to Cast in Doncaster in a major revival from English Touring Theatre, one of the UK’s most successful theatre companies.

French Without Tears is the very funny coming-of-age story in which the beautiful Diana Lake runs rings around a group of handsome and infatuated young men.

Be transported to the sunny and carefree French Riviera with the play that The Sunday Times said was “A hoot of an evening” and the Daily Express called “Enormously enjoyable”.
