EDWIN LEWIS is a Yorkshireman by birth.
At an early age he sold papers in a big industrial town, and for three years he worked, outside school hours, as a lather-boy. At the age of fourteen he worked in a coal mine, and he has since slung bricks, melted steel, written poetry, served as a soldier during the war and generally had an exceedingly varied career. He believes that there is a great future in the new medium of broadcast drama and is devoting much attention to the technique required for this special form of play.
' THE REED IN THE WOOD'
A new Romany Romance specially written for
Broadcasting, by EDWIN LEWIS
Characters (in order of speaking):
Cathleen Cametti , Seth Carnetti , Naomi Laplaux , Simon Robins
Mad Martin
UNDER the shelter of the trees, in a woodland glade, on a late midsummer's night, two tents are pitched. In the foreground a log fire burns fitfully in the light breeze.
The still form of Cathleen Carnetti , who is sitting before the fire, completes a picture of romantic beauty. Her face is of the colour of ripe maple, with a hardness round the mouth that suggests its own story of wandering, fighting and struggling. She draws a gleaming knife from her waistband, and staring fixedly before her, speaks.
The Cast includes :
HYLDA METCALF, ELLA FORSYTH , D. E. ORMEROD , FRANK NICOLLS and E. H.

Sarah Brown (a North Country Miner's Wife) Margaret Spikesley (Her Unmarried Sister) Bill Brown (Her Husband) Herbert Brown (Her Son)
SARAH is intent on her sewing. The patch she is weaving into Herbert's second pit trousers claims her undivided attention, so that to her, Margaret's monotonous, affected voice seems a long way off.

MARY EASTWOOD , LUCIA ROGERS ,
CHARLES NESBITT , and E. H. BRIDGSTOCK
