Miss Clifton played in an sincere manner. Thomas Chatterton as a misjudged husband, looked well. Paulina Rona did the best possible as an Irish chef although any other nationality would have been prefered.
The plot is shallow.
"Billy Barklay's Baby"
Failed to arouse laughter or applause.
The fault lies with the sketch. The scence, dialogue and theme were hackneyed and it was risque.
