Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a play which with its sudden reformation of a hard-hearted money-grubber through a vision might well take for its motto the old stage-direction ‘here the miser leans against the wall and grows generous’. The hero after showing all sorts of meanness and cruelty in his conduct of his life, especially in his treatment of a sweetheart of bygone days who seeks his help, falls to sleep over the fire and dreams that he sees himself destroyed by the ‘gold god ‘to whom he has offered all his humanity as a sacrifice. When he wakes it is as a changed man, only too anxious to give where he has hitherto refused, and to find happiness in the happiness of others. The benevolent nightmare may safely be recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall.
