The production was reviewed by the Aberdeen Press and Journal (5 February).

"A strong cast gave a delightful rendering of the work, in which Mr Hebden Foster, as the villain of the story, and Miss de Kleno gave specially note worthy performances.  'Home to our mountains' received the inevitable encore, and the Anvil Chorus merited the full aspplause given to it.   Mr Neville, in the prison scene, was dramatically strong, and vocally he was heard to better advantage than in his previous performances."

The cast for Aberdeen is from a copy of the programme in Aberdeen City Library. Saturday performances were only rarely reviewed by the press, so confirmation of the four principal roles in Dundee is from advertising.
