The Unexpected Happened

The men hide her behind a screen and while Mrs. Dobbins treats the family to a curtain lecture upon their dilapidated appearance she apears above the hiding place.
The opening scene shows father and son on their return home from an all-night "souse." The wife, a managing woman's rights feamle, is in Boston on business, which is the occasion of the celebration.
The early part of the sketch drags a bit, but the audience found it funny when it got in full swing,
A farce of the broadest, showing little novelty and not a great deal of sure-fire humor. Whatever laughter the number won was due to the buffoonery of Edna Reming in the role of an impossible "tough" girl.
