SYNOPSIS: 

 

The Grand Regent Prince Charles intends to spend the evening before his coronation with a chorus girl, but when Mary Morgan arrives the liason goes disastrously wrong. Mary realises how lonely these aristocrats are and the Regent responds to her simple philosophy by saying that everything can be solved by adding a little more love. In true fairy tale style they fall in love - but even fairy tales have to end... 

 

 


PLAYWRIGHT: Terence Rattigan (June 10, 1911 – November 30, 1977) was one of England's most important 20th century dramatists. For a decade after the Second World War, he was one of England's leading playwrights, but the eruption of the "kitchen sink" school of English drama in the mid-1950s scuttled his critical reputation. This play was made into a film in 1957, but renamed 'The Prince & The Showgirl' starring Marilyn Monroe & Laurence Olivier, which he also directed.
