A play by J. S. N. Sewell and J. R. Mageean and Produced by Edward Wilkinson
The producer of this play, Edward Wilkinson , recently came to the North Region from Northern Ireland. In False Creation he will be handling a play that is essentially radio-dramatic. Much of it would be impossible on the stage or the films.
The story deals with John Howard , a rich industrialist, who works hard from a sense of duty, but who allows himself to day-dream. Gradually he finds the delusions taking a more and more important part in his life.
