"BROWN SUGAR" [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

'BROWN SUGAR' 'Brown Sugar' will he presented at His Majecty's Theatre for the first time in Brisbane next Saturday. The play derives its title from the descrip tion of the heroine, who^is 'coarse but sweet.'

Kathleen Mac Donncll was Judy in Auetralia. with Charles Waldron as the man who be come known as 'Daddy Long-Legs.' A number of talented Brisbane children will appear in this production.

So every theatre into which she goes the entire Pip, Squeak, and Wilfred family has to go, too, besides a large doll, and the original apron which 'Judy Abbott*' wore when Renee played Daddy Long Legs for the first time.
