Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Morritt the magician showed that the black art 'can be practised by persons above and those below ground, and that it is possible to be amusing without being silly or clownish'. Martin Conway should be seen in Birmingham more often. M.S. Whallen was one of the funniest new turns to arrive from America.
