‘The Exeter Drama League last evening gave an excellent performance of Arnold Bennett’s comedy, “The Title,” at the Barnfield Hall, Exeter, but the attendance was not large as the performance merited. The characters were ably sustained as follows: Tranto, Kenneth S. Spreadbury; Hildegarde Culver, Anna Innes; John Culver, Harold Gayton; Mrs. Culver, Elsie Morgan Edwards; Mr. Culver, Percy Boddington; Parlourmaid, Vivienne Sturdy; Miss Starkey, Elspeth M. Bradford; and Sampson Straight, J. Reed Cumming. Mr. J. Reed Cumming was the producer, Mr. Ernest Pitts the stage manager, and Mr. C. Osman the prompter. An efficient orchestra, under Mr. W. Pursey (flute), comprised Mrs. H. Mann and Mr. Percy Nicholls (violins), Mr. C. Strong (viola), and Miss D Maddock and Mr. E. Q. Chick (‘cellos). Miss Adeline H. Curtis was the accompanist’.
