A forgotten classic by "one of the supreme dramatists of the 20th century" (Michael Billington, The Guardian), Terence Rattigan's Variation on a Theme is revived at the Finborough Theatre for the first time in over fifty years. Intended to "blow up the establishment", the play is centred on the tempestuous love affair between the beautiful socialite Rose and Ron, a young bisexual ballet dancer keen to rise up the social ladder.

 

About Finborough Theatre

The Finborough Theatre in Earls Court punches well above its weight, presenting award-winning plays and works by new writers in a small theatre above a pub. Founded in 1980, the Finborough has just 50 seats creating an intimate space for its productions which focus on developing new writing, rediscovering neglected works and presenting the best of the old and new in an eclectic programme.
