By Edward Bond.
Cast: 7m., 7w. (Extras.) "A comedy by that most abrasive of British playwrights, Edward Bond, would seem to be a contradiction in terms," writes critic Herbert Kretzmer, "but last night Bond set out to make us laugh." Set in Edwardian times in a small English coastal village, the plot is a simple one. Willy Carson meets Rose Jones, the girl to whom his drowned friend was engaged and, in the events following the storm, falls in love with her. Bond adds a fantastic subplot about a mad draper who believes there's to be an invasion from outer space and a posse of funny society ladies who stage amateur theatricals. Two int, two ext. sets.
