Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A novel kind of miniature spy-drama, with its scene laid in a workman’s dwelling occupied by girl-workers in a munition factory. Tracings of shell-patterns have been missing, and one of the girls is turned on as detective to discover the source of the leakage. This is found by her, and by the audience, to be due to the employment by the superintendent of a female secretary who is a German in disguise, and who is speedily caught in her theft of important papers. Her attempt to bluff it out by the aid of a pistol is defeated by the coolness and courage of her female antagonist; and all ends well, except for her. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall.
