Come Out To Play

Revue devised by Eddie Pola and Peter Watson. Music and Lyrics: Various.

Phoenix Theatre, London - 19 March 1940

The Cast included:

George Carney, Eric Cole, Robert Doming, Sonnie Hale, Jessie Matthews, Peggy Rawlings, Hal Thompson

For this new revue Jessie Matthews and Sonnie Hale re-assembled practically the whole company of "I Can Take It," which had a highly successful tour through Britain, and was about to open in the West End, when war was declared.

Come Out to Play was an entertainment that hadn't a dull moment. Dance, music, comedy, magnificent dresses, splendour, glamour, all came along in turn to charm the audience. Jessie Matthews and Sonnie Hale were not monopolising the entire programme. They had the support of a grand team of artistes.
