SEPARATE TABLES by Terence Rattigan

*We anticipate tonight's 6.30pm performance will go ahead. *

Wed 28 Feb 2018 - Sat 03 Mar 2018

1956: The Beauregard Private Hotel near Bournemouth is a hotbed of repressed emotions and middle-class Englishness. Each of the staff and residents has their own reasons for seeking the solace of a quiet life, but hiding away from a growing wave of cultural change proves to be impossible. Things can’t go on as they were and nothing will ever be the same again. 

Today: 50 years on from the decriminalisation of homosexuality, this alternative version of Rattigan’s gently subversive two act drama (written by him for its American premiere) observes the challenges to the status quo of the changes in post-war British culture and puts a spotlight on the treatment of ‘difference’ within our society.

Directed by G. Wallace
