Read Narrative
'The Mystery Gun,' by Fred. Clayden, goes with a bang. it is very clever and very laughable. The Four Shades a ladies' vocal quartette, is a harmonious delight, and the singers charm the audience. Songs without singers, by the Miles-Stavordale Quintette, is a remarkable performance. Miss Joan de Ferraro sings charmingly. Will Gardener strikes a new comedy line. Macdonald Watson and Company appear in an amusing Scottish playlet; and very clever is the Monkey-up-a-stick Act by the Spanish Grace Bros. (Hampshire Advertiser - Saturday 08 January 1916)
