Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

Jack and Jill are married and are living in Scotland and Jill receives a letter in Italian. A woman in love with Jack intercepts it and writes something on it. Jill cannot read Italian and shows the letter to various people, each of whom, reading the postscript, is horrified and denounces Jill. She is turned out of various places including a tram car; finally meets Jack, who has been away, but when she wants to show him the letter and find out what the dreadful postscript meant she has lost it. This little plot, rather amusing in itself, is eked out with various comic characters and scenes, a local postman, a female tram-conductor, a female waitress and so on. The fun is not refined, but is free from unpleasant suggestiveness. The songs not included are stated to be published numbers. G. S. Street
