A bailiff who has attempted to deliver a writ to the manager of a theater falls through a trap at the center of the stage. He holds out his arms and drops a paper inscribed "A Red Tail," and says, "Zounds what a cursed Infernal Trick." At left, the manager bows towards him and says, "Good Morning Mr Catchpole you'l [sic] find more of your tribe when you get to the bottom." The actors on stage and the musicians along the bottom look at the scene and laugh.
