The Exmouth Players present “Separate Tables”, a play by Terence Rattigan, at The Blackmore Theatre, Exmouth, on:
- Monday 24th to Friday 28th June 2019 at 7.30pm; and
- Saturday 29th June at 4.30pm.
As the action unfolds, it is almost 10 years since the end of the War, which changed the lives of so many.
At the Hotel Beauregard in Bournemouth live a number of individuals whose varied circumstances have brought them to this measured, predictable existence presided over by the resourceful Miss Cooper.
During two closely linked Plays their secrets, triumphs and disappointments provide a distraction from the daily routines of meals in the Dining Room and conversations in the Lounge.
The arrival of a former wife in ‘Table by the Window’ and revelations concerning a Court case in ‘Table No.7′ make waves for the permanent residents and guests, as well as Miss Cooper herself, in this otherwise sleepy coastal haven.
Terence Rattigan’s characters are recognisable and believable. He has a way of constructing their conversations which draw the audience’s eyes to those who are not speaking. He also manages to engender a sense of caring what happens to even the least sympathetic of them.
Both stories tell us a great deal about human nature and the way in which some relationships are built, destroyed, rekindled and re-evaluated. Whether or not those resolutions produce the right outcome for the individuals concerned, it is for the audience to decide.
