A Play for Broadcasting, in One Act, by W. H. Roberts.
Played by The Station Radio Players

The Spirit of Autumn
Scene: A Kitchen in the Farmhouse at Greenglade in the West Country
Time: An Autumn evening
John, the farmhand, is willing, but clumsy and stupid: Ethel Bridge is anxiously supervising his labours, for she is trying to get her luggage out of her husband's house without his knowledge.
The lure of the stage has seized her once more, so that she forgets the ill-health and sordid penury from which John Bridge rescued her; yet had he only appeared on the cinema screen, he would have seemed to her the ideal of manhood.
