When Saved first opened in London in 1965, the dark working class drama sparked a controversy for its brutal depiction of young bored Londoners stoning a baby. This central event causes the play's loner protagonist, Len (Pete Starrett), to realize that he could have stopped them, a realization powerful enough to make him feel saved.
