A New Play in Three Scenes by EDWARD FARMER
SCENE I. Madame Lazenta's flat—11.0 p.m.
SCENE II. Curzon Street—Midnight.
SCENE III. Robert Lobell 's flat.
Had it not been for the presence of the street hawker in Curzon Street on Christmas Eve, two people figuring in the incidents of this play would have spent a very different Christmas day.
A Farce in One Act by FRANK TYLDSLEY
In the previous play we requested listeners to recall a season which is past, and in this we ask you to imagine one which we hope is in store.
A hot summer aftemooon finds Richards engaged in tidying up his master's apartment, in an exclusive hotel at Brightport.
His labours are interrupted by the arrival of Mr. Todd. Had the latter foreseen the preaicament in which his visit to Brightport was eventually to place him, he might never have undertaken it.
