Production notes: 
Broadcast on the Daventry Experimental 5GB station from 9.30-10pm. In a letter to Hilda Matheson, 10 November 1928, Murray proposes to read "two or three bits of chorus + enough dialogue to make - with occasional comments - a connected story", so this was not a reading of the whole play.
