The Park

After completing Juno and the Paycock, Sean O'Casey and Hitchcock began planning an original screenplay based on the "comings and goings in a small public park during one day as a sort of microcosm of city life".[1]

The planned project came to nothing and, instead, O'Casey used the idea for his 1934 play Within the Gates.[2]
