Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A little play on a hackneyed theme. Jack, as a boy, had been parted from Nell, a village girl, and she had gone to the bad. She turns up at an hotel and talks to Jack's wife, Cecily, not knowing who she is, defiantly about her life and past. Later Jack detects her putting a forged note in place of a good one in Cecily's purse. He is going to denounce her when they recognize one another. She upbraids him and threatens to tell his wife about their past relations but Cecily's goodness prevents her doing so an she send the stolen note as a present to their little boy. It is not a pretty subject, but there is nothing offensive about it. Recommended for Licence G. S. Street
