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
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.
