Quiet Wedding
A play by Esther McCracken adapted for radio by MOLLIE HARDWICK
Produced by DAVID H. GODFREY
† Broadcast on Jan. 26. 1966 (Light
Esther McCracken 's play was first produced in London at the Aldwych Theatre in 1938, and. like her companion play Quiet Weekend, was an immediate success. It is set in the Royds' comfortable house in the heart of the stockbroker country, where preparations are at full throttle for Janet's wedding the following day.
Complications multiply in the best McCracken tradition, with plots, sub-plots, and counter-plots. Finally what looks like the ultimate disaster occurs — the disappearance of the ' happy pair.' Imagination, already boggling, beginsto run riot; but in that same tradition a happy ending is eventually achieved.
