Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is an ordinary little war play, silly but well-meaning. The scene is supposed - apparently - to be in a village in France or Belgium occupied by the Germans. Dora, an Englishwoman is insulted by a German officer. Her English lover, Philip, comes as a spy through the German lines with dispatches for British reinforcements. He cannot get on, and Jack, a boy scout, takes them for him. Philip is arrested by the German officer; Dora abuses the Kaiser; the German says she will be his mistress; Jack returns and the village is occupied by our troops; death of the German. There is no offensive brutality, and the play, alike in its silliness and sentiment, is like a hundred others. Recommended for license G. S. Street
