The revue R.S.V.P., including Alice in Lumberland, ‘a fantasy in three phases,’ written by Archibald de Bear, with ballet and incidental music by Norman O’Neill, with additional scenes and lyrics by Reginald Arkell, was produced at the Vaudeville Theatre, London, on 23 February 1926. With dances arranged by J.W. Jackson and the ballet choreographed by Quentin Tod, with settings, costumes, &c by Clifford Pember, the piece included a cast headed by Robert Hale, J.H. Roberts, Quentin Tod, Joyce Barbour, Mimi Crawford and Enid Stamp-Taylor. The number of performances is uncertain because of the General Strike, but is thought to be in the region of 294, closing on 6 November 1926.
