Saturday Play - The Tennis Court


By Jonathan Smith Sam and Arthur Greenwood confide in each other about everything. But in 1943 Sam is posted to India with the 14th Army while his brother, a haemophiliac, remains at home in Kent. In April 1944 the Japanese Army surround the British forces in the small hilltop town of Kohima and, as the two sides face each other across the tennis court at the back of the Deputy District Commissioner's bungalow, Sam is haunted by a secret he has not shared with Arthur. Sam ..... Dan Stevens Arthur ..... Jot Davies Mother ..... Celia Imrie Lettie ..... Jasmine Hyde Pearce ..... Thomas Arnold Penny ..... Cressida Trew Tom ..... Martin T. Sherman Producer/director: Bruce Young.
