Read Narrative
‘“The Man Who Stayed at Home” is attracting good houses here [the Royal, Windsor]. Clifford Marle as Christopher Brent is extremely good all through the piece. J. Edward Pearce represents John Preston in a thoroughly characteristic manner; while Christine Cooper as Molly Preston is picturesque and artistic, doing justice to the part. Ethel Coleridge in the rôle of Fräulein Schroeder impersonates that character splendidly. Joan Stanley gives a clever representation of Miriam Leigh. Edith Cuthbert as Daphne Kidlington is good. T. Arthur Ellis in the part of Carl Sanderson portrays the character well, and Malcolm Cumming as Fritz is quite convincing. Hilda Francks portrays Mrs. Sanderson admirably, and Frances Waring is successful as Miss Myrtle. E. J. Bennett King as Percival Pennycuik is also well placed. The while is a delightful and vivacious performance, and is much applauded’ (The Stage, 29 November 1917). N.B.: The Stage, 22 and 29 November 1917, listed The Man Who Stayed at Home (Red Co.) as On Tour from 26 November at the County, Kingston.
