New edition of one of Rattigan's best-known plays to coincide with major revival starring Corin Redgrave in the role made famous by his father Michael Redgrave The Browning Version is the story of an unpopular and unloved classics master at a public school in the 1940s. Deserted by his wife and on the verge of retirement, Crocker-Harris finds a form of redemption in an unexpected parting gift from a previously unregarded pupil - a secondhand copy of Robert Browning's translation of the Agamemnon. Filmed twice, with Michael Redgrave in 1951 and Albert Finney in 1994, this new edition of The Browning Version is published alongside a major revival on stage starring Corin Redgrave. Complete with an extensive introduction by the Rattigan expert, Dan Rebellato, it is one of the titles in the definitive edition of the plays of Rattigan published by Nick Hern Books. Also included in the volume is the farce, Harlequinade, written to accompany The Browning Version in a double-bill.
