5.20 ' What Katy did at School by Susan Coolidge , adapted for the microphone by Muriel Levy. Part 1
Katy was destined for immortality in the minds of children from the very moment that she was created. Certainly she ranks among the greatest of all characters in childhood fiction. Played again this afternoon, as she has already been played, by Rosamund Barnes , Katy will be just-Katy.
Apart from her performance-there were four broadcasts—in Tomboy Katy , Rosamund Barnes has broadcast as Wendy in Peter Pan. On the stage-to which she was first carried as the baby in Madam Butterfly twenty years ago-probably her best part was in Emil and the Detectives -at the Vaudeville in 1934. Rosamund has done a good deal of film work, 07_01_272among her films being Housemaster and 18 Minute*

Scene : A Bohemian village on the afternoon and evening of the Patron
Saint's Day. The action takes place during the first half of the nineteenth century
Marenka, the pretty daughter of a peasant couple, is promised in marriage to Vasek (son of Micha, a wealthy farmer) whom she has never seen. She objects to the suit because she is already in love with Jenik, whose doubtful parentage and position make him a less desirable match.
The marriage-broker Kecal intrigues on her parents' behalf to bring off the union between Marenka and the rich but stupid Vasek. As these two have never met, Marenka easily contrives to conceal her identity and put Vasek off the track.
But meanwhile the marriage-broker persuades Jenik to relinquish his chance of obtaining Marenka by accepting a bribe to give her up--on condition that her bridgegroom shall be Micha's sen. The usual complications follow, but in the last act Micha recognises' in Jenik his long-lost elder son, and as the marriage-contract only calls for Marenka to marry ' the son of Micha ', she is now free to choose between Jenik and Vasek, which she does to everybody's satisfaction.
