Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Peggy Pryde was well known to the audience and was given a hearty welcome. The programme was so full, she was unable to perform any encores. Maud D'Auldin and Delno Fritz swallowed swords and other 'unspeakable things'; and Maud Distin reached some very high notes in 'The Monarch of the Woods'
