Yes, I suspect "lost" means he thought it wasn't really very good when he wrote it and hid it at the back of a drawer!

As for Jenny Seagrove in The Governess - another play found at the back of the same drawer - what a theatrical feast in prospect!! Dames Judi and Helen had better look out!!!!

It's only fair to report that Michael Billington gave this production a decent review last week.
