‘Cup’, as we called it, was one of the lesser-known Aldwych Farces; and one night, late in the run, we were told by the FOH manager that Ben Travers was actually in the audience. Despite being 92, he had travelled all the way from London Pitlochry on the train to see his rarely-revived 1928 farce. Backstage, we were in a state of high excitement at the thought of meeting the great man. However our hopes were dashed. At the end of the performance, Travers left the auditorium and made straight for the main exit, pausing only to say to the FOH Manager ‘Not one of my best!’
