Read Narrative
‘Mr. E. Taylor Platt’s excellent company, which for two years has been touring the Royalty Theatre success, “The Man Who Stayed At Home,” received a hearty welcome here [the Grand, Clapham Junction] on Monday evening. Mr Leslie Nielsen Clare gives a finished piece of acting in Mr. Dennis Eadie’s part of the nonchalant, but smart and cute, Kit Brent. Miss Peggy O’Hara is a charming Molly Preston, while the part of Mr. Preston is played with care by Mr. Edward J. Pearce. The crafty Admiralty official and German spy finds a clever exponent in Mr. Harry C. Robinson. Miss Frances Waring gives a telling impersonation of the Fraulein Schroder (sic – Schroeder). Other parts are all admirably enacted, and the play, which met with an enthusiastic reception, was finely staged’. The Era, 15 May 1918.
