Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A sensibly-written discussion - in the kitchen-of the War, and the duties of loafers, who content themselves with criticising French's operations in the intervals between football matches. Specimens of these stay-at-homes are the Cook's and the Housemaid's admirers, who listen unconvinced to the arguments and chaff of their sweethearts, but are finally shamed by the example of a despised rival who, being egged on by the spirited Cook, enlists, and is promptly rewarded but the promise of her hand. A sound little object-lesson conveyed in racy natural dialogue. Ernest A. Bendall
