Read Narrative
The authoress has constructed a workmanlike play that could easily be adapted to conform with twice-nightly requirements. There is an interesting story, and the plot is cleverly developed. If there is one point to be urged against "Honour the Man You Wed", it is the lack of originality displayed, as in many particulars it is reminiscent of a melodrama that has done duty on the road for some time past. ('The Stage', 5 April 1917, p. 15)

Read Narrative
Good houses last night witnessed Eva Elwes' play, "Honour the Man You Wed" and enjoyed it very much. ('Coventry Evening Telegraph', 28 August 1917, p. 2) It deals with modern life, and although some of the incidents appear somewhat sensational when focussed on the stage it does not require a very minute examination of the realities of existence to obtain proof of the legitimacy of the introduction of the majority of them. ('Coventry Standard', 31 August 1917, p. 6). Twice nightly, matinee on Saturday
