In 1954, Evelyn Waugh, reacting against a bitterly cold winter, and suffering from bouts of rheumatism and insomnia and forgetfulness, set off alone on a sea voyage to Ceylon. On his return to England, he confided to a friend, ‘I haven't seen you for a long time, but then I've seen so few people because - did you know? - I went mad.' By February 1956 he felt strong enough to describe in detail what happened during the voyage. The result was a short novel, The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold. In this dramatisation Ronald Harwood skilfully recreates the ordeal of a man living through a nightmare of intrigue and conspiracy, beset by hallucinations and voices in the air. Originally starring Michael Hordern. (Cast 12m, 4+f)
