IN THE LAND OF THE BLIND . . . . . . .

  At sometime in the 2-3 years following WW2 I remember listening to a radio play about a sighted man who wanders into a village of all blind people. He does not always find his sight of great advantage, as for instance in the dark they all know their way around whereas he just stumbles about. He also possibly upsets them by trying to take advantage of his sight. Inevitably he falls for a local girl, but before they will let him marry her he has to let them blind him.
  Whether this was written as a play, or an adaptation of a story I know not. Neither its title nor its author. Can anyone please enlighten me?
