1 Nov 1917 The FoundationsProfessional
Read Narrative
'Mr Galsworthy's queer little comedy "The Foundations" has not gripped the theatre-goers of Liverpool. Last night's audience at the Playhouse was by no means a large one, but it made amends for its lack of numbers by its eager interest in the playwright's creation and its generous appreciation of the acting. Truth to tell, it is the acting, and especially that of Mr. George Dewhurst as the revolutionary plumber, that makes bearable a stage presentation of a comedy which is much less a genuinely-constructed comedy than a whimsical piece of leg-pulling, in which democracy, aristocracy, and theatre patrons are alike the victims. Of burlesque and cynicism there is plenty, but as a coherent stage story, or as a study of social conditions after the war, even in the form of comedy, "The Foundations" is disappointing.' Liverpool Daily Post, 6 November 1917.
