EMOTIONS are suppressed in Terence Rattigan's final play In Praise Of Love at Kenilworth's Talisman Theatre.
Rattigan explores the inability of the English to express their true feelings to each other- demonstrating both how it can be a strength and a weakness.
The play is set over two evenings in an Islington Flat in 1973 as the country collapses into industrial anarchy.
Literary critic, Sebastian Cruttwell, (Andrew Bayliss) is married to Lydia (Linda Connor), an Estonian war-time refugee and ex-espionage agent. Their son, Joey (Damien Storey), who believes that his father's Marxist views are totally hypocritical, has become an agent of the Liberal Party.
Both Sebastian and Lydia have individually received some very bad news when their friend, successful American novelist Mark Walters, arrives for dinner.
The production runs from March 4 to 9. Tickets, priced from £7 to £8.50, are available by calling the box office on 01926 856548.
