There is a macabre quality and a satire and imagination in the works from this author's pen that make his plays peculiarly suitable for the microphone. He has a gift of creating atmosphere and clear-cut characters that come over and grip you. And as a producer
Lance Sieveking has the gift of bringing out the Dunsany essence.
He produced two of this author's biggest microphone successes in If, broadcast in the winter of 1930 and repeated the following year, and in that real Dunsany thriller, Bureau de Change , produced last spring.
