Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a much-condensed and ingeniously simplified edition of the more elaborate piece now running at the Shaftesbury Theatre. It still tells the story of the scotch lad who is to inherit his uncle's large fortune, provided that he can prove himself the worthiest of the millionaire's relations. As before other possible heirs plot to get Angus up to London, to separate him from his devoted sweetheart, and to make him fall a victim to the temptations of fast life in a night-club. From these he is saved, partly by his canny thriftiness and partly by his sudden determination to enlist. After a peep at his soldier life in France we see the young hero returning triumphantly to "Blighty" and to his faithful sweetheart's arms. The "Revue" is thus turned into an ingenious Musical Comedy with its unpretentious little romance prettily illustrated by appropriate musical number. Recommended for License Ernest A. Bendall.
