'SEA SILENCE '
A Play of Terror on tho High Seas
Specially written for broadcasting by EDWIN LEWIS
Characters (in order of speaking) :
The action takes place on the deck of the Sea Lark at night in the tropics. Two men clad in cotton shirts and loose trousers are sitting on boxes. They have not spoken for some time, both being lost in contemplation on the tropic night which is starless and black as pitch.
All is quiet with that unearthly silence one finds when seas are like glass and the air is heavy with brooding impending tragedy.
