Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a dramatized version of the arrest and execution of Miss Edith Cavell by the Germans for her admitted offence of aiding English and French soldiers. After their treatment in her Red Cross hospital in Brussels, they re-join their regiments in their respective lines. The name of the German officer immediately responsible for the brutality is given, as Von Muller, as is also that of the General - Von Bissing - though he does not appear. Painful though it be, I see no objection to the actuality of this tragic sketch, which indeed could only have a beneficial effect; and it is accordingly Recommended for License. Ernest A. Bendall [The following is written in black ink below] Title Nurse and Martyr and the actual names changed. This has been done.
