Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is an incoherent musical extravaganza of the modern revue pattern. Its scene is laid in the planet Venus where there assemble from ‘eeeorplans’ a set of 'knuts' and chorus-girls of the period, for whom the star is to be run by a rascally promoter as a limited liability company. There is very little plot but much slangy dialogue, full of rough chaff of the plays and players of the day. Though it is vulgar in tone there is no harm in any of it; but care must be taken that the ladies costumes supposed to be Greek, and alluded to as scanty and chilly, are not reduced below the margin of propriety, Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall.
