Union Wheel Drama

Recommended Posts



With exceptionally bad taste the manager of the Sheffield Theatre has produced a drama called The Union Wheel, which deals with "Broadheadism" (hiss 'em it should have been) and other unpleasant trade matters.

The sentiments in favour of the ruffianism of the "Union" were received with delight by the gallery.

We always thought the jurisdiction of the Lord Chamberlain extended to the provinces so far as the licensing of new plays was concerned. If so, where was Mr Donne on this occasion ? Perhaps the piece was produced without his knowledge. If so we beg to refer him to a recent number of the Sheffield Independent, in which this charming drama is fully described.
