Play of the South Seas, by Dale CoIIins. Producer, Fred O'Donovan
Certainty the inhabitants of Samaratu, a lonely little port in New Guinea, thought nothing but well of those two dear old things Agnes May and Emmeline Potter who came to settle and do good works in their midst. They were made very welcome, and became well known to the men of the neighbouring gold mines.
Old ladies, of course, however gentle and pious, are not always what they seem ; indeed, if the folk of Samaratu were surprised at one aspect of their visitors, you could have knocked them all down with a feather at another.
