AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Harlequin and Columbine (convincingly played by Ruth Conabere and Eric Donald) decide to abandon romance and become modern, but are appalled by the behaviour of Jack and Jill (Frank Goddard and Maisie Bennett), whom they chose as their models. Ultimately they convert this ultra-modern pair to romance.'


'The Playwriter Theatre', Table Talk, 28 June 1928, p.18.
