A review in the Aberdeen PJ (22 January) complained about 'the scanty audience.'

"Last night's performance, taken all over, was highly enjoyable and satisfying. What defects there were were simply due to the limitations of an itinerant company."

After a week in Aberdeen (w/c 20 Jan) then one in Dundee (w/c 27Jan), there followed three in Edinburgh’s King’s Theatre (commencing 3 Feb, 10 Feb, 17 Feb) and two in Glasgow’s Theatre Royal (w/c 24 Feb; 3 Mar).
