In tonight's excerpt from Subway in the Sky now running at the Savoy Theatre, London, all three worlds of stage, films, and television will be strongly represented, for Margaret Lockwood has achieved a great reputation in all three, and the American Zachary Scott, best known in this country for his film roles, has also made several stage appearances on Broadway.
The play itself is by Ian Main, whose more usual role is that of a theatre stage manager. It is a fast-moving slick-talking American crime play, with the kind of quick-fire American dialogue that one would expect to find from a writer well versed in the habits and idiom of the underworld. And yet, the author himself has never been to the States.
The action of the play takes place in a luxury penthouse apartment in New York which the attractive Englishwoman Dinah Holland has rented. Into the apartment one day comes Major Grant, explaining that he is on the run from the American Army authorities. His story seems plausible enough until the arrival on the scene of Gene Grierson, of the F.B.I., who proceeds to reveal a number of flaws in the Major's story. Nor do the surprises end there, for there is a Mrs. Grant to add confusion and drama to a situation already laced with thrills and comedy.
Tonight's excerpt, presented only four nights after the opening, marks a departure from the usual BBC Television policy of theatre visits to comedies, since Subway in the Sky is essentially a thriller.
