That’s All There Is (Adam Brown)
February 14 – 15: Aird’s Hall, Crail, Scotland

(Information above on performance dates is derived from newspaper archives and is therefore likely to be incomplete.)

Fine Singing and Acting

Aird’s Hall, Crail, was full last night, when Mr Adam Brown presented his new review, entitled “That’s All There Is,” a Ruritanian episode with a plot designed to make you laugh.

Excellent singing and acting made the performance a memorable one, and the audience were not slow to show their appreciation. Mr Adam Brown and Mr W. Beattie, as Douglas Bearshanks and Sheerluck Bones, kept the audience in roars of laughter. Mrs Mitchell charmed with her songs.

Mr James M’Leod (tenor) had a great reception, while Mr Colville Carr kept the audience in fine humour with a military number, “Something About a Soldier.”

The violinist, Mr Jack Lawrence, rendered several pieces, while Miss Jennie Hutcheon and Mr Brown were well received in their numbers.

The chorus included Misses Etta Brown, Lorimer, Anna Brown, Isa Lorimer, L. Cunningham, Grubb, and H. Cunningham.

The accompanists were Mrs C. Carr and Mr Ted Jackson. The performance will be repeated tonight.
