Separate Tables was a West End and Broadway success and then adapted by Rattigan and John Gay into a major Hollywood film. The play ? or rather two plays ? reveals the personal trials of a group of distinct people, all of whom reside at the Hotel Beauregard in Bournemouth, England. Major Pollock is a garrulous man who speaks of nothing but his stellar war record. Sybil Railton-Bell, the meek, introverted daughter of the high-minded Mrs. Railton-Bell, has developed a great affection for him, much to her mother?s displeasure. Another resident is writer and former Labour politician John Malcolm, whose estranged ex-wife ? a beautiful, but vain and self-centered former fashion model ? arrives unexpectedly at the hotel. The scene is set for Rattigan?s masterpiece of theatre to unfold.
