Rattigan's Nijinsky archiveIn 1974 Terence Rattigan wrote a television script for the BBC about Diaghilev, genius impresario behind the Ballets Russes, and Nijinsky, the greatest dancer of all time. He was proud of it, but the film was never produced and the script, withdrawn mysteriously by Rattigan himself, was never published. Now playwright Nicholas Wright imagines why. In this new play, a dying Rattigan meets Nijinsky This unique event, two world premieres in one, is a thrilling meeting of playwrights in Rattigan s centenary year.
