AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Revusical.

George Wallace starred as Lazy Joe, an indolent young fisherman who cannot summon enough energy to go out with the fleet but proves a hero when put to the test. The part of Captain Ben, a robust fisherman (with a fine baritone voice) was played by Marshall Crosby. Other characters include Martin ('a quaint old sea dog brimful of dry humour'), Jed Flint (the villain), the stuttering Ginger Jimmy, Nell Dwye (the heroine), and Mother Daly (a sad old lady whose husband had been swallowed up by the sea).

Notes

  • The Brisbane Courier indicates that the January 1926 production was Wallace's newest creation.
