TRAVELLERS’ JOY by Arthur Macrae


A farcical comedy about the straits to which British travellers may be reduced by shortage of foreign currency. Mrs “Bumble” Pelham is visiting Stockholm on business. She spends her traveller’s allowance all too quickly and cannot pay her hotel bill. HUnger drives her to appeal for help to her ex-husband, Reggie Pelham, but he is as badly off as she. They combine their talents to borrow money from an opulent and shady British visitor and his mistress. The attempt fails, and when they seek an illegal loan from another source, they are threatened with blackmail. But the series of hardships and petty disasters which Bumble and Reggie undergo at least serve the purpose of bringing them together again. Finally, a second honeymoon is almost forced on them by an enterprising Swedish hotelier.

Originally performed in 1948 starring Dora Bryan, Yvonne Arnaud and Arthur Macrae
