Terence Rattigan

Terence Rattigan

Sir Terence Rattigan (1911-1977) was a dramatist who wrote some of the most memorable and important plays of the twentieth century. His career as a successful dramatist ran from the opening of his first adult work on the London stage in 1933, First Episode, written with a friend while he was still an undergraduate at Oxford, until his death shortly after the London opening of his last completed stage work Cause Célèbre. During that time he completed 25 full length stage plays, plus numerous one-act plays, radio, television and film scripts. His plays include The Browning Version, The Winslow Boy and Separate Tables. Two of his plays ran for over 1,000 performances in London’s West End and another four for over 500. His films include The Sound Barrier, The Prince and the Showgirl, The VIPs and The Yellow Rolls Royce. Today, more than 30 years after his death, his plays are still performed all over the world.
