Tynan is based on the diaries of the infamous theatre critic and writer Kenneth Tynan. Written over the last ten years of Tynan's life, these painfully honest and revealing diaries create a portrait of one of the most interesting and complex men of our time. Literary Manager of the National Theatre under Olivier, dominant theatre critic, journalist, impresario of Oh! Calcutta!, Kenneth Tynan was a profound, original and witty observer of his world. And never was he more ruthless than when he turned his sights upon himself. Adapted by Richard Nelson and Colin Chambers. Directed by Richard Nelson.
