The managers last kick, or a new way to pay old debts

Active selection in cart:
The managers last kick, or a new way to pay old debts. An episode in theatrical management is made the subject of the present caricature. Just as the "red tail" writ is being served on the manager, a stage trap-door is suddenly let down, and the objectionable visitor is whisked off the scene. The wily lessee is bowing his fallen enemy out of sight with mock respect : 'Good morning, Mr. Catchpole ; you'll find more of your tribe when you get to the bottom!'. Artist: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827. Date: 1811. Sourced from Digital Commonwealth website.
