Synopsis

An evening of two one-acts by Terence Rattigan, Table By the Window and Table Number Seven, both set at an English seaside hotel. In Table By the Window, a frigid woman attempts to win back her husband who has just come out of prison for attempting to murder her. Table Number Seven follows a spinsterish young woman who resolutely defends a shy man, despite her domineering mother's objections and even after he turns out to have molested women in darkened movie theatres.
