Stages: A Few Short Journeys Of The Heart (BBC Two 1994, David Troughton, Saira Todd)



Stages A Few Short Journeys of the Heart 1994

In A Few Short Journeys Of The Heart middle class writer Rust travelling to London by train allows himself to drift in and out of a fantasy world. A non-straightforward production for sure, Andrew Davies called the drama “a comedy about the universal search for love.” Brilliant performances all round though with all of the cast taking on more than one role.
