The Cat and the Canary

This two-part tour (January to May, July to November) was a revival of a previous Victor and Hugh Haymen tour staged in 1924, with minimal cast changes.

Marjorie Allen began this tour as Susan Sillsby, with Muriel Gregory replacing her for most of the first leg; she then returned in July, only to be replaced by Muriel Gregory again at the end.
