Cartoon, Matinees! Matinees!! Matinees
Cartoon, Matinees! Matinees!! Matinees!!! Trixie Southbank, who is tired of being an 'extra' and wants to play Juliet, asks John Hollingshead (1827-1904), manager of the Gaiety Theatre, for a matinee slot. Hollingshead replies that it can't be done, because Mr Sparerib, the butcher, is playing Hamlet that day. A comment on the growing trend of amateurs performing in professional theatres.
