(Charles Spencer’s article appeared in the Telegraph, 1/24.)

A busy year of revivals celebrating the centenary of Terence Rattigan’s birth begins with a Rattigan premiere – or at least a kind of premiere. Less Than Kind was written in 1944 and is, in part, a Forties version of Hamlet. In it a 17-year-old boy, Michael, returns from Canada, where he has been sent for his safety during the war only to discover that his beloved widowed mother is living in sin with a rich industrialist, a minister in the wartime government.
