Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

An odd little thing. 'Eterfem', who stands for the eternal feminine, wants a husband and draws a chalk man on a slate, who promptly materializes. She will have nothing to do with him and 'rules him out', making him disappear through the slate. Then a 'real man' comes and they flirt, and after the chalk man has intervened and been rubbed out again Eterfem draws a house on the slate, into which she and the real man disappear. I do not know how this slate business is managed: it sounds ingenious. There are also songs, a property moon which sinks, a cock and so forth. The whole effect should be curious and so far as I can see entirely harmless. Recommended for Licence. G. S. Street
