Terence Rattigan's Cause Celebre is an intriguing play based on the true story of Alma Rattenbury who went on trial with her 18-year-old lover for the murder of her husband.
Terence Rattigan's final play Cause Celebre will be staged at The Old Vic in March 2011, celebrating the centenary of his birth. Directed by Thea Sharrock.
Condemned by the public more for her seduction of a young boy than for any involvement she may have had in her husband's death, Alma's fate is left in the hands of the socially and sexually repressed jury forewoman, Edith.
