Restless Heart

Lucienne Hill’s translation of LA SAUVAGE. Totalling 21 performances, the St James’s run was the shortest for any Anouilh play in the West End.

RESTLESS HEART, an early work, was interesting as showing this brilliant playwright’s technique in embryo. The play was not helped by William Chappell’s production and even the excellent cast … could not save the play. George Baker, the popular film star, was obviously miscast as the romantic lead.” – Theatre World Annual (London) Number 8
