'ANNUAL INQUEST ON THE BRITISH THEATRE.'
Cartoon of 13 people gathered around a large table labelled: 'Backer from the North' / 'Basil Dean' / 'Representative Lowbrow Playgoer' / 'Ghost of W. Shakespeare' / 'C.B. Cochran' / 'In the chair - (and/or) Hannen Swaffer, St John Ervine, James Agate' / 'Critics with secret plays of their own' / 'The Remains'. On the table lies a large 'Verdict' reading: 'that The Remains is practically dead and if not, well who sad so anyway?'
