Scene: The Congo Bush at night.
The Play Produced by R. J. JEFFREY.
The duration of the above play is some fifteen minutes. In order that you may derive the greatest interest from this transmission and fully appreciate the strong dramatic story which the play tells, it is suggested that you lower your lights and not allow your attention to be distracted by the prosaic things which surround you. If you follow out this request, it will not be difficult for you to conceive a vivid scene of the mysterious Congo night, the thick undergrowth, a small clearing, the young English traveller and his companions, a nervous young Cockney, a middle-aged African gold-prospector, and also the intrepid girl on whom the situation pivots; these characters silhouetted by the distant background of the glistening black bodies of the tribesmen with the accompaniment of the somewhat threatening beat of the tom-toms and the wailing of the native war chant.

Popular Airs. "Come Back to Erin" Claribel, arr. Fletcher (2) " Oft in the Stilly Night " arr. K. C. Finlay " Alice, Where Art Thou?" Ascher, arr. J. C. Long " Home, Sweet Home" arr. C. Hutchins Lewis (2)
