SCENE — Room in MR. WOODPECKER TAPPING'S house. Door C. Doors R. and L.
Patty. Is it all right, Mr. Jackson?
Jackson. All is right, Patty. (Kisses her.)
Patty. Now, none of that, if you please. Your master, Mr. Woodpecker Tapping, is to be
Jackson. In the next room — you shall see them presently.
Patty. But how comes it that the wedding takes place from the bridegroom's house, and
Jackson. Because the bride, Miss Maria Maguire, lives at Pettytwiddllm, in a remote corner of Wales — and as Mr. Tapping can't get leave to go down to a remote corner of Wales, a remote corner of Wales has to come to him.
