SynopsisBack stage at Mr. Harding's Music Hall all is in turmoil - ticket receipts are down as the company is threatened by the popularity of the Moving Picture House next door, Madam Harding, the star of the show, has lost her nerve, someone has blocked the chimney, causing the wings to fill with smoke, and the lowly stage hand is definitely not what he seems to be. Even so, the show must go on, and the back stage drama alternates with the Music Hall turns on the stage.
