Harlequinade

By Terence Rattigan
Published in volume The Browning Version

A farce about a touring theatre troupe, written to accompany The Browning Version in a double-bill under the joint title, Playbill.

Terence Rattigan's play Harlequinade follows a classical theatre company whose intrigues and dalliances are revealed with increasingly calamitous consequences in an affectionate celebration of the lunatic art of putting on a play.

Harlequinade is published in a volume with The Browning Version. It is also published in the volume Harlequinade & All On Her Own.
