A Play in Three Acts by ST. John ERVINE
Presented by VICTOR SMYTHE
Relayed to London and Daventry
John Thurlow , the head of Thurlows'
Shipbuilding Yard. has at last completed the task of building a super-ship, which in his estimation is unsinkable. His one sorrow is that his son Jack has grown up a priggish, humourless lad, whoso outlook on life is characterized
(Manchester Programme continued from page 595.) by a persistent revolt against convention. He opposes his father's wish that he should take his place at Thurlows' and carry on the work of three generations. The play describes the conflict between the ambitious father and the easy-going son-a a conflict familiar enough in the modern novel and play,- but here dealt with in an original and intensely poignant manner.
