Mr Monkey went down a staircase at one side of the stage, through a long passage, and up a set of stairs at the other side of the stage. The passage is a useful place to keep offices and dressing rooms, and it's an excellent way for actors to cross the stage invisibly. Then Mr Rik, under close supervision, pressed the button to lower the safety curtain, and Mr Monkey left the Grand Theatre. And that ended his Matcham tour.
