A PASSENGER TO BALI by Ellis St. Joseph


Email this review


This play was given by Orson Welles on the air, a dramatic, virile variation of the Flying Dutchman theme. It reads so much better than the average play that it should get a good general market, especially away from New York and vicinity. And this interest should be stimulated by the fact that it is to be played on Broadway by Walter Hueston. Another man without a country, this time an anarchist who is refused port the world over, is thereby made a permanent Jonah on a small freighter in the China Seas. It takes an act of God in the form of a hurricane to release the ship and its crew from the unease that the undesirable passenger creates. Well done.
