Read Narrative
Performed this week by a cast including Arthur Page, Shirley Stuart, Little La Coupe, Ethel Percival, Daisy Snow, and Charles Derwent. 'It has always been something of an open question as to whether the stage, variety or dramatic, should be used as a channel for public 'complaints'. Recently we had the problem of profiteering before us in sketch form, and this week the more important question of reprisals has to be faced. Mr Horace hunter [...] has a good axe to grind, and he tells a homely and, at the same time, straightforward story.' (Stage, 26 July 1917)
