This is the foreboding tale about a missionary who encounters a raucous prostitute on a quarantined Pacific isle. Her contempt for him changes when she realizes that he has discovered bits of her life and can have her returned to prison in the States. So she plays up to him and asks to be forgiven and converted. The missionary deserts his wife and another white couple for several days as he prays Sadie into a sickly stupor. She is truly contrite, and resolves to give up her life of sin. But on the last night, after she and the Reverend enter her room to pray, something happens. The next day Sadie is her same blatant self again, accusing all men of being pigs, and that the Reverend is discovered on the beach, a suicide.

The turn around time was pretty good, but I have been spoiled by instantaneous access online.  

The play itself is a good adaptation of the Maugham short story, able to condense the essence into the one  box set.  Two good roles and a handful of solid supporting parts.  I also like "The Letter" from the same period, but it would require a lot of PC policing to make it palatable to contemporary audiences.  

I want to give it 3.5 stars but the system makes me choose whole stars so it's 3.
