Mercy Flight

By Angus Macvicar

Item details

A mushroom cloud hangs over the launching-site beyond the airfield. Five people have been exposed to radiation in an accident to an experimental rocket. Will the "Mercy Flight'' - an ambulance plane from Renfrew - arrive in time to save the lives of Professor Lambert and his wife and pretty secretary, of Dr. Rossini and old Kirsty MacLean? This is a suspense story with a highly topical and realistic background, dealing as it does, with the relations of a group of scientists with the people of a remote Hebridean island. But the central theme is still a human one -what happens in a time of danger to the characters of two women in love with the same man. A powerful play, set in a BEA waiting-room, which provides scope for imaginative production and intelligent acting.
