The original London production, from 1902 to 1903, played for a long run of 432 performances and was followed by provincial tours. A successful New York run of 223 performances began in 1903, and successful Australian runs followed. The plot is triggered when a wife sees her husband kissing a shop girl who has delivered her new hat from Kay's hat shop. This is a postcard in a series depicting stage personalities, Willie Edouin is shown as the American millionaire, the part he created in this show - caption: Im Hoggenheimer. As so often in productions of the period, the American millionaire is a comic character, but in this case the audience is asked to laugh with rather than at him. Date: 1904

The Second in Command - Mr and Mrs Binks Featured Print

The Second in Command - Mr and Mrs Binks

Mr and Mrs Binks - A very funny cartoon by Phil May showing a VERY dominant Woman (wearing a monacle) leading her subservient and tiny husband and their small son along the street, his face a picture of downtrodden fear and wariness. They pass the symbolic sandwich board for a performance at the Theatre Royal of The Second in Command - the role Mr Binks undoubtedly occupies in this specific relationship!!! Date: 1901
