Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The leading act is Fred Maxwell and four colleagues in an abbreviated version of 'The Corsican Brothers'. The most is made of the duelling scene, and is played with considerable vigour. Revell is a contortionist who may be said 'to defy the doctors to ascertain what he does with his bones'
