Not a bad adaptation of Terrence Rattigan's Cause Celebre but a few performances over-egg the pudding a bit. David Morrissey makes an early career appearance as Bowman, the man who has an affair with Helen Mirren's Alma and may or may not be the murderer of her husband Rats. David Suchet puts in a sterling performance as T.J. O'Connor, the defence barrister for Alma and is the best thing in the play by far. Mirren's performance is good but it was never going to be as iconic as her more famous roles in later years. The play builds up to a cracking ending but there was a bit too much celebre before the cause but the main players cannot be blamed for that.
