' HOME WITHOUT A MOTHER '
(The fourth of the ' Browns of Owdham ' Series)
By EDWIN LEWIS
Characters (in order of speaking):
We are introduced to the Browns' kitchen at late tea-time on a Saturday night.
Among one or two other ornamental mottoes on the wall is one which reads, ' What is Home without a Mother ? ' Bill Brown , in solitary state and with melancholy mien', is just finishing tea. He turns and gazes at the mctto with obvious indignation.
THIS is the latest ' Sarah Brown ' play by Mr. Lewis, a playwright whose work is becoming well known to radio audiences. Manchester Station has already produced four of his plays, Liverpool and Daventry, Glasgow, Cardiff and Sheffield have each done one, and next week Sheffield will produce This Film Business under the author's direction, with himself in the cast.
