Royal Aq. is a humorous caper about two Vaudeville actors whose careers started when they first met at Anthony Pastor's Fourteenth Street Theater in New York City in 1881. Our accomplished vaudevillians go to England to experience Music Hall, thinking that Music Hall is the same as Vaudeville. However, what our Vaudeville artistes essentially failed to grasp is the fact that Music Hall originated from the new style of saloon bars to be found in Public Houses. These emerging establishments replaced the Pleasure Gardens such as those in Marylebone, Ranelagh, Cremorne or Vauxhall. In those Gardens debauchery and licentiousness were rife and, vestiges of that Unbecoming Behaviour could occasionally manifest themselves at awkward moments on the stage, even in red plush Music Halls!
