The Plutocrats [1937]

Song. — Gilbert With Chorus Of Executive And Witches


Gilbert With Chorus Of Executive And Witches.

In fiery chariot winging Etc.

(There is a sudden terrific peal of thunder, very close. An immediate black out follows, for one second, and as the lights slowly come up, Mr. Nemesis is seen, his arm outstretched in the Nazi salute, standing on the top step in front of his throne. He is tall, majestic - an awe - inspiring figure, with pointed black beard, moustache, and small horns. There is dead silence for a moment, and then a wind instrument in the orchestra plays "Pop-eye the Sailor Man" in a plaintive tone. Whenever Mr. Nemesis appears during the play, this air should be played. He wears a flowing red cloak, and faultless evening dress underneath. He is smoking a large cigarette.)
