Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A well-written little play, with the fault that an intelligent spectator would see the conclusion at an [...] early stage. A man and his daughter come home to supper after the theatre. The daughter tries to persuade the father to let her go on the stage, but he says though she is all very well in amateur theatricals she would never make a real actress. They go to bed. Enter a female burglar: the man comes back; she tells him of her pitiful story; he relents and gives her money; then he sees his daughter's ring on her hand and is going to telephone to the police, when she stops him, for lo: (as the intelligent spectator has seen) she is his daughter proving that she can act. A good part for an actress. G. S. Street 1 January 1917
