Turn Up The Lights
Let's all sack the Wicked Uncle, Sack the Wicked Uncle right away War, we've got to stop it,
Make old Neville hop it,
Let us all have peace on earth to-day. Let's all sack the Wicked uncle, Despite his gout,
het' s push, him, out—and say, Never trust reaction, That's a silly thing to do, Sack the Wicked Uncle right away !
—it's the Unity Theatre at it again, with a new version of their political pantomime, 7he Babes and the Bear.
This time it's a revue that the Left wits have ingeniously devised, caricaturing the Black-Out, Evacuation, Ladies in Uniform, A.R.P., and all the rest of the War Jollities.
Lacking a little of the vigour that we expect from the people's theatre, we found the show rather a sad, limp affair, reminiscent of a barrage balloon earthed.
