First performed on 8 September 1948, this is the 70th year anniversary of the play's first performance. The Broninng Version is seen by some as Terence Rattigan's best work.

Trapped in an unhappy marriage, the thwarted desires of Millie Crocker-Harris are released in the form of spite and betrayal as her ailing, humiliated schoolteacher husband, Andrew - also unloved by his pupils - faces academic and marital oblivion. But could an unexpected gift from one student help restore some semblance of humanity?
Rattigan’s finest play is full of moments of great compassion and heartache. A masterpiece.
