A comedy by A. A. Milne
Presented by the Oxford Repertory
(under the direction of Eric Dance and Stanford Holme)
The action of the play takes place in the morning-room of Marden House, Buckinghamshire, on a day in July
Production by Lance Sieveking
The company taking part in this play, the Oxford Repertory Players, have broadcast frequently in the past. Their last appearance at the microphone, listeners may remember, was in The Dover Road.
For the past eleven years the company's headquarters has been the Oxford Playhouse, a building that was once a big-game museum, but plans have now been made for a new theatre, costing £25,000, to be built in Beaumont Street.
Apart from the appearance of Richard Goolden (the BBC's own ' Mr. Penny ') as Mr. Pim, an interesting member of the cast is David Tree , who is the son of Viola Tree.
This play will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 2.25
