Redgrave & Rattigan Back with Browning???

By • West End
It could be three times lucky for actor Corin Redgrave and two times lucky for playwright Terence Rattigan in the West End this year. Redgrave seems to be making a bid for most prolific player. He’s following his just-finished Royal Shakespeare Company King Lear at the Albery with a retread of his one-man show Tynan at the Arts from next week (See News, 11 Jan 2005). And, if all goes to plan, he’ll follow that up with a reprise of his Derby Playhouse turn in Rattigan's The Browning Version. The production was originally tipped for a West End transfer in 2002 but now looks likely for later this year (See The Goss, 26 Jun 2002). In it, Redgrave plays unpopular schoolmaster Andrew Crocker-Harris, a role made famous by his father, the late Michael Redgrave, in the 1951 film version. Rattigan is currently represented in the West End by Maria Aitken’s revival of his 1963 play Man and Boy, starring David Suchet, which opened at the Duchess Theatre last night.
