Harlequinade & All On Her Own Tickets
The first season of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company promises a year of unmissable theatre.
Working in collaboration with artistic associates, director Rob Ashford and designer Christopher Oram, the acclaimed actor-director Kenneth Branagh presents an exceptional series of five plays that bring together a remarkable group of actors, led by Rob Brydon, Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, Zoe Wanamaker, Lily James and Richard Madden.
By Terence Rattigan
24 October 2015 - 13 January 2016
In this rarely seen comic gem, a classical theatre company attempts to produce The Winter's Tale and Romeo and Juliet, while the intrigues and dalliances of the company members are accidently revealed with increasingly chaotic and hysterical consequences.
The behind-the-scenes world takes centre stage in Terence Rattigan's affectionate celebration of the lunatic art of putting on a play.
ZOË WANAMAKER WILL PERFORM RATTIGAN’S ONE-WOMAN PLAY, ALL ON HER OWN, PRIOR TO HARLEQUINADE EACH NIGHT, AS PART OF A NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN DOUBLE BILL.
ALL ON HER OWN
by TERENCE RATTIGAN
Cast includes ZOË WANAMAKER
In this brief but powerfully atmospheric play, a woman with a secret, alone at midnight in London has a burden to share that is at times both heart-breaking and sinister. This never-before-seen double bill celebrates the contrast in Rattigan’s astonishing range.
Harlequinade / All On Her Own Reviews:
'This Terence Rattigan double bill is a sparkling opening to the season.
Branagh is genuinely fantastic... a great comic'
'Wanamaker is devastatingly good'
'A terrific comic turn'

Harlequinade And All On Her Own: A Delightful Double
I doubt I was the only person who got rather excited when the Branagh Theatre Company's season of plays at the Garrick was announced earlier this year. But instantly we were faced with a dilemma: five plays to choose from and a limited budget, so which ones to go and see?

Review: Harlequinade / All On Her Own
Harlequinade / All On Her Own is a fabulous double bill, directed by Kenneth Branagh and playing at the Garrick Theatre. Opening with an emotionally engaging piece (All On Her Own) and then moving to a light comedy (Harlequinade), this production stands out against self-indulgence and proves that you don't necessarily need epic proportions to make a superb West End show.
