(By arrangement uith Emile Littler ) in Two One-Act Plays
' SIR HERBERT IS DEEPLY
A Comedy in One Act by H. C. G. STEVENS
Scene : The Private' Sitting-room in a West-end Theatre, of Sir Herbert, most distinguished of Actors, at the end of a Matinee
A Comedy in One Act by NEIL GRANT
Scene: A Room in a Bungalow on Dartmoor, late at night
Both plays produced by HERBERT M. PRENTICE
The Repertory Theatre, Birmingham
THE FIRST of these two plays, from the studio at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, is by a very well-known London journalist: H. C. G. Stevens- whom Fleet Street has named ' Inky ' Stevens. It is a skit on the old type of actor - manager ; the kind who was the subject of the novel ' Enter Sir John '. The second play is by Neil Grant , the author of Petticoat Influence, which had a successful run at the St. Martin's. In On Dartmoor a convict--and later two warders-visit a bungalow not far from the famous prison. The comedy lies in the reaction of the lady of the house to the convict and his plight.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
