Funny Mrs Jones part 07
Composer: Hunt, G W
Audiences were made up of all classes and both sexes. When Charles Morton opened his 'Canterbury Theatre', ladies were admitted every evening rather than only on specific 'ladies nights'. Audiences were encouraged to join in with the songs and to shout and heckle the performers as they made racy and risqué comments. Stamping their feet and clapping their hands, they would have made a considerable noise and only the strongest characters would have been able to control them. During this song, Arthur Lloyd laments that he cannot understand the Scottish accent, you can imagine the roars and cheers of the audience.
