Described as "a neglected little treasure" by Dominic Cavendish in the Daily Telegraph, R. C. Sherriff's supernatural drama, The White Carnation, is a ghostly tale of one man's chance to do things differently. This rediscovery by the Finborough marks the first production since its premiere, starring Sir Ralph Richardson, in 1953.
