Examiner of Plays' Summary:

An amusing little play with a little surprise at the end. A wealthy Baronet learns that his son, a flying boy out in France, wants to marry an actress. She comes to see him and is interviewed by his brother-in-law, a KC. They like one another and after an amusing scene of sham cross-examination she confesses to being 27, and, though she likes the boy, to not being in love with him. The KC persuades her to give him up and also to accept compensation, £2000. When she has got the cheque she owns up that she is married already, with two children. because the boy’s wild letter to her had shown that his nerves were all wrong, she was afraid to distress him while he was still on flying duty, and of course intended to tell him as soon as he returned. But she couldn't resist pulling the KC’s leg. Recommended for license. G. S. Street
