the novel by William Gerhardi dramatised for radio by Lance Sieveking
The polyglots are a group of refugees from Russia and German-occupied Belgium. By 1918, war and revolution have destroyed the traditional foundations of gracious living on which they have relied, but the play finds them living and behaving as extravagantly as ever in Tokyo, presided over by the formidable and domineering personality of ' Aunt Teresa.' But a naive and touching fortitude arms them against a sea of troubles.
Cast in order of speaking:
Other parts played by Betty Linton , Karen Glazer
Kenneth Dight. David Spenser
Eva Stuart , and members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company
Produced by R. D. Smith
