In Praise of Love

Performance Dates

“The English vice is not flagellation or pederasty, it’s our refusal to admit to our emotions.”

A seemingly fractured family whose ties to each other are deeper than any of them realize find that sometimes, unkindness is the kindest thing. Rattigan, the author of The Winslow Boy and Separate Tables, is characteristically witty in this play based on the marriage of Rex Harrison and Kay Kendall, one of the early hits at the Kennedy Center.
