Anouilh’s LE VOYAGEUR SANS BAGAGE (first produced at the Théâtre des Mathurins, Paris in February 1937) in an English adaptation by Alice Wagstaffe.
This was the first English-language production of an Anouilh play. It was staged on consecutive Sundays – 5th, 12th and 19th – in December 1937.
“The French author, Jean Anouilh, has given the English adapter, Miss Alice Wagstaffe, much assistance. Miss Wagstaffe … has transferred the action of the play to a typical English country house setting belonging to Conservative Britons.” – ‘Chit Chat’, The Stage 25th November 1937
In different translations, this play was later seen under the titles TRAVELLER WITHOUT LUGGAGE or THE TRAVELLER WITHOUT LUGGAGE [qv].
