The production featured elaborate and realistic scenery, including a real brook and three live deer. It was well received by audiences, and according to a Manchester Evening News review, "there were even loud cries of 'encore' at the close of the famous 'Seven Ages' speech by Jaques" (13 Jan 1908). Flanagan revived his production in January 1916.
