The Pyramid is a new radio play by Norman Edwards , part-author of Waterloo, broadcast in June of last year. Its unusual and picturesque setting is the central chamber of a pyramid near Cairo. A party of sightseers are trapped by a falling wall; their only light is broken. The effect of this unpleasant adventure on the individuals is the theme of the play, which makes gripping entertainment well adapted for broadcasting. A Visitor from Down Under is a thriller of another kind; it was broadcast with great effect in a 'recent Miscellany.
