Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A knockabout farce with songs and dances - i.e. a 'revue' as the word is misused, though it is not called one. The plot is simply the propose elopement of a young woman with a young man, assisted by two comic friends. The first scene is in a bazaar, with scenes of fortune-telling and so forth; the second outside the house, with comic effects of one of the friends getting hung up on a spike on the garden wall; the third inside the house, with comic entrances and alarms, real burglars confused with the eloping party, policemen, dressing up and general scrimmages. One of the friends is tipsy throughout the piece but not, so far as the script indicates, in an offensive way. It is, in fact, a harmless frolic with only a moderate amount of vulgarity.
