Jermyn Street Theatre Streams Terence Rattigan
Jermyn Street Theatre of London's West End are streaming Terence Rattigan's illustrious play In Praise of Love tonight at 7:30pm. First performed at the Duchess Theatre, London in 1973, In Praise of Love is a powerful story of deception and fatality in relationships. Egotistical left-wing literary critic Sebastian and his East European refugee wife Lydia, with the best of intentions, deceive each other over Lydia's fatal illness. The play was based in part on the relationship between Rattigan's friend, the actor Rex Harrison, and his wife Kay Kendall, who died of leukaemia. Rex Harrison went on to play the part based on himself in the Broadway production of the play at the Morosco Theatre in 1974.
