The Restless Evil

The Restless Evil
Written by Charlotte Hastings
Directed by Harry Dunphy
27 November – 2 December 1978

After a prison break, convict Jubilee, with two companions, takes over a small roadside café. The owners are temporarily absent, however a special party of their friends is expected to lunch. After serving the visitors lunch, the gang tells them they are prisoners. The mutual reactions of ‘respectables’ and ‘villains’, the mounting tension of the situation, and instinctive groping towards some sort of understanding, form the basis of the events that follow.
