by BERNARD SHAW

Shortened version for radio by CEDRIC MESSINA starring Sybil Thorndike with Cecil Parker and Gabriel Woolf Written in 1899. this play is set in Mogador and the foot-hills of the Atlas Mountains: 'in those hills there is a justice that is not the justice of your courts in England. If you have wronged a man you may meet that man there. If you have wronged a woman you may meet her son there. The justice of those hills is the justice of vengeance.'
