Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A go-as-you-please musical sketch of gay life as it is lived at Monte Carlo by a Major, two daughters of whom he is anxious to find eligible husbands, a moneylender and a Satanic Count apparently endowed with supernatural power. Under the influence of the Count the roysterers enjoy dreams, or nightmares, of Revue dancing and popular ditties, until the moment comes for the Declaration of International War and for a patriotic song from a French girl about her British and Belgian allies against a German foe. Chaotic but inoffensive; and Recommended for License. Ernest A. Bendall.
