Read Narrative
The Alderley & Wilmslow Advertiser, 28 March 1919, advertised at the Gaiety Theatre, Manchester, from Monday 31 March for two weeks the Vedrenne and Eadie Company, including Louie Pounds and Stanley Turnbull, in The Title by Arnold Bennett, preceded by Postal Orders by Roland Pertwee. ‘“The Title,” which is produced to Manchester audiences for the first time [at the Gaiety], is a sparkling comedy in which Arnold Bennett is seen at his best. The dialogues are simply brilliant, and having obtained such a first-rate subject as the dispensation of titles for his satyr, the author plays with it to the finest possible effect' (Manchester Evening News, 1 April 1919). ‘Arnold Bennett’s three-act comedy, “The Title,” delighted the patrons [at the Gaiety, Manchester] on Monday with its sarcastic references to titles and the home influence of the fair sex' (The Stage, 3 April 1919).
