Cause Celebre

Based on the sensational true story of Alma Rattenbury who went on trial with her 18-year-old lover for the murder of her husband. Condemned by the public more for her seduction of a young boy than for any involvement she may have had in her husband's death, Alma's fate is left in the hands of the socially and sexually repressed jury forewoman, Edith Davenport. Cause Célèbre is an intriguing tale of love, betrayal, guilt and obsession, published alongside the nationwide centenary celebrations of the playwright's birth.
