Read Narrative
‘A drama of absorbing interest, and one that play-goers of Middlesbrough will be ill-advised to miss, comes to the Opera House next week. It is “The Man Who Stayed at Home,” and deals with the trials of a young man who, although he cannot give reasons to his sweetheart for failing to enlist, doing his country the greatest service in working to break up a German spy organisation. There is a strong caste for Mr E. Taylor Platt’s production’ (Daily Gazette for Middlesbrough, 4 September 1915). Noted in The Stage, 9 September 1915, which listed the cast.
13 Dec 1915 La Revue Tricolore Professional
Read Narrative
‘Patrons this week are afforded a unique opportunity of witnessing a genuine French revue. “Le Moulin Rouge” is quite typical of the revue as it is known in France. It is played by French artistes, and it has the distinctive Parisian savour. The music, the dancing, and the dresses are all delightful, humour is not lacking, whilst Frank Attree and Jaques Lerner are on the stage, and the little scene “In the Trenches” played by men actually wounded in the present war is most effective’. Daily Gazette for Middlesbrough, 14 December 1915.
