Seven passengers meet in the saloon bar of a ship as it sets sail from an unidentified English port. Socialite Mrs Cliveden-Banks is on her way to join her husband, a Colonel in the army; Mr Lingley has important business in Marseilles; charlady Mrs Midget is making her first passage by sea; Reverend William Duke is looking forward to a holiday, while Tom Prior intends to spend the journey in the ship's saloon bar. Also on board are Henry and Ann, a young couple who seem anxious for the ship to leave port. But the travellers have more in common than they dare to suspect. Out at sea, an eerie calm settles over the ship as Tom is the first to discover the fate which awaits his fellow passengers... Outward Bound originally opened at a London Off West End theatre in 1923, and played for many years in London s West End. It was followed up with a Broadway transfer and made into a Hollywood film in 1930. It was filmed again as Between Two Worlds in 1944 with John Garfield and Sydney Greenstreet. This production is the first London production in more than fifty years, and returns the play to the same type of Off West End theatre where it began its life.
