A lost Rattigan play directed by a friend of the playwright

24th January 2011


The writer and director tells Carole Woddis about Terence Rattigan’s lost play, Less Than Kind (an early version of Love in Idleness), which is currently enjoying a sell-out premiere at the Jermyn Street Theatre, with a cast led by Michael Simkins and Sara Crowe. He also reflects on his 60-year career.

We were looking for a play to produce and since I’d been a great friend of Rattigan this really was an ideal project.
