-- L.A. Theatre Works records Terence Rattigan’s classic drama with Martin Jarvis (Titanic, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) at the head of a distinguished British cast. Stuck in a broken marriage and facing the prospect of a retirement with no money, classics master Mr. Crocker-Harris is a tyrant hated by his students. But an unexpected act of kindness breaks his emotional shell, bringing out the deep-rooted dignity and heartbreaking sadness that give this play its power. All performances will be recorded to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org. June 21-24; James Bridges Theater at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television, 235 Charles E. Young Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90095; $15-$49; 310.827.0889;
