Six people in the cast and Gillingwater stands out as distinct. Carlyn Strelitz as the brother idolater was poorly cast. Richard Clarke as the butler played to good effect.
The sketch is built for comedy purposes. The plot involves love and money. Plenty of slang is added. No natural humor is evident.
"A Strenuous Proposal"
Forced laughter is procured.
