Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Frances Haskell, standing at the back of the stage and by constant change of dress, also assisted by two powerful colouring lantern cameras was able to justify the description of a 'Vocal Chameleon'. The Shelleys' turn is about a doctor being called instead of a vet, to a cat which is not shown to him, but is referred to as 'Baby'. 'The complications and cross-talk can be easily imagined'. 'The Emperor's Divorce' is based around Napoleon and Josephine.
