Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

An American comedy of sentiment, very ingenuous and innocent. Also very long-winded, but the essentials of the story can be told briefly. Budd is a love-sick youth on the verge of a nervous collapse. Gerald, a young doctor, treats him with physical exercise and so forth, and by keeping them apart makes his young woman, Grace, jealous of him instead of his being jealous of her. So Budd and Grace become happily engaged. Gerald's assistant, a pretty young woman,Virginia, is in love with him and he falls in love with her, but he thinks she is in love with somebody else, and so his treatment for jealousy becomes a boomerang. When he finds out his mistake the curtain falls on "a long kiss". Out of these simple elements, with some other complications, there is made a rather pretty play, but not quite so amusing as it is harmless. A great relief, however, after the difficulties of some recent farces. Recommended for Licence. G. S. Street.
