For the Chorus Unfortunately, only a few opportunities. The play was originally presented with a total company numbering fewer than a score, and producers who plan additional work to cater for larger companies must take great care that the delicate balance of the play is not disturbed. Needless to say, nothing that could possibly constitute an infringement of copyright can be permitted. Within these limits, and played in a right roistering spirit, this can be one of the great fun shows, and should certainly do wonderfully well at the box-office.
