Rattigan’s “Less Than Kind” at The Waterside Theatre

Less Than Kind at the Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury from 24th – 29th June

Less Than KindIn this hilarious romantic comedy, steel magnate John Fletcher has risen to the colossal challenge of out producing Albert Speer and the Nazi war machine in tanks for D-Day. Five weeks later he can leave the government, file for divorce from his unfaithful wife and marry his true love, the widow Olivia Brown. But an even greater foe enters the fray – Olivia’s son who has returned from evacuation is now 17. He has joined the rising tide of socialists and is outraged at the thought of his mum marrying ‘the enemy’. Can John reach his true love and who will Olivia choose?

Starring Sue Holderness (Only Fools and Horses, Green, Green Grass) and William Gaminara (Silent Witness), this beautiful Terence Rattigan comedy lay undiscovered due to an accident of wartime and is now brought to the stage in Adrian Brown’s critics’ choice production.
