Quotes & Highlights

Winner of 3 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards
The Browning Version is a consummately satisfying theatrical outing. But it’s also a subliminally disturbing one. Rattigan understands what audiences think they want as well as what they don’t know they want.  And the secret to his success is that he provides both.“_ —”Los Angeles Times":http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2009/12/the-browning-version-terence-rattigan-lives-at-pacific-resident-theatre.html_
“Fox directs this piece with masterful subtlety and draws devastatingly convincing performances from her actors.” -LA Weekly
“The actors give amazing performances, under Marilyn Fox’s elegant direction.” -Backstage

Description

Written by Terence Rattigan

Produced by Sara Newman-Martins

Rattigan’s 1949 masterpiece brilliantly explores the complexity of the human heart. It predates Albee’s Who’s Afriad of Virginia Woolf in its scathing examination of a marriage. A contemporary of Noel Coward and Somerset Maugham, Rattigan’s wit and depth remain timeless.

This production was listed in Charles McNulty’s Top 10 Theatre Performances for 2009.
