The Revenge is a radio play by Andrew Sachs. It was first broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 01 June 1978. The running time is 30 minutes. It is probably his most famous play, consisting entirely of sound effects with no spoken dialogue.
A man leaves his house, crosses gravel paths and woodland, hides underwater and eventually succeeds in entering a house and murdering a rival.
The listeners hear exactly what the protagonist hears during his odyssey, as if they were in the body of the protagonist himself. For the stereophonic illusions to work properly, this work has to be heard on headphones.
