Morley Revives Bagnold's Chalk Garden???
Date: 10 April 2002
Theatre critic-turned-director Sheridan Morley plans to revive Enid Bagnold's The Chalk Garden this autumn. The 1951 play, about an old woman's attempts to find a governess to help tame an unruly granddaughter and an unruly garden, was Bagnold's biggest stage success. It enjoyed runs on both Broadway and in the West End and was made into a 1964 film starring Hayley Mills, Deborah Kerr, John Mills and Edith Evans. Also a novelist, Bagnold was probably best known for her 1935 book National Velvet. Morley's other directorial credits include The Lodger, Noel and Gertie and Song at Twilight, which starred both Vanessa and Corin Redgrave in its 1999 West End run. The Chalk Garden will be produced by Bill Kenwright.
