A Sentimental Irish Story
Book of lyrics by Paul Furniss
Additional lyric by Althea Lambert-Glasby
Music by Horace Keats
Orchestrations by Robert Chignell
The Cast
Josef Marais and his Orchestra Production by William MacLurg
(Empire Programme)
This is an ingenuous little story in an Irish setting, concerning an Irish singer (Denis O'Neil ) who returns from America just in time to save his girl and her mother from the bailiffs.
Paul Furniss and Horace Keats live in Australia, and have had a number of radio successes out there. The musical arrangements by Robert Chignell will be truly Irish in flavour, the scoring being for strings, woodwind, and harp.
