Being a further episode in the life of Sarah Brown
A Farce in One Act by Edwin Lewis
Played by the Station Radio Players

Scene: Mrs. Brown's kitchen about that time of night when the hero and heroine on the films are kissing in their final 'close-up,' while the audience are searching for mislaid gloves, hats and handkerchiefs.
Sarah and Hannah are discussing the destinies of the young folk, and as every woman is a born matchmaker, they have been doing what you expect. Sarah is very practical and knows that the way to make things happen is not to hope so much as to pull the strings. Just now. like the writer of film melodrama, she is arranging her scenario for the entertainment.
