This was, of course, Terence Rattigan's first successful play, produced in 1936 at the Criterion Theatre with a cast that included Rex Harrison, Trevor Howard, Robert Fleming and Jessica Tandy. It was never meant to be anything more than the lightest of souffl'es and is more or less actor-proof which is just as well for the cast here. It is now available in a five DVD boxed set of Rattigan (and for some reason IMDb makes no mention of "Adventure Story", a BBC production featuring Sean Connery). In the case of this production one is reviewing the play rather than the performances and it remains a tightly-constructed craftsman-like effort.
