A farcical comedy by Vernon Sylvaine.
[Starring] Jack Buchanan

with Dorothy Dickson and David Hutcheson.
A special performance before an invited audience at the Garrick Theatre, London.
(By arrangement with Jack Buchanan)

Mr. Bentley is an accountant, sober and highly respectable, leading a blameless life and one that would be humdrum if it were not for his family. His wife was once on the stage and still hankers after the bright lights; his daughters are wildly individual. Patricia has married an Existentialist playwright and dresses the part; Gwendoline is sobbingly in love with a crooner whose speciality is making people cry. Mr. Bentley finds them rather a trial. He tries reason, expostulation, and even threatens to walk out on them - all to no avail. And then the German psychiatrist, who has been hired for a very different purpose, offers Mr. Bentley some advice. He takes it and among the results is a hilarious scene in which, with that debonair touch only Jack Buchanan can assume so agreeably, he sings the theme-song of all cloying crooners, the cheerful little ditty called "Cry."
