1977. Terence Rattigan, once regarded as the golden boy of the West End stage, is 66 years old and dying of leukaemia. As he waits for the curtain to rise on the first night of his last West End play (Cause Célèbre) he is haunted by memories from his earlier life - his schooldays at Harrow, his disagreements with his philandering exdiplomat father, his devotion to his mother, his lovers, his huge success and wealth followed by his spectacular fall from favour, his descent into delusion and paranoia - and, through all this, his relationships with two of his closest friends and the lover of whom they disapproved.
