Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A pretty little play of the better understanding between classes brought about by the war. Gertie Gates, a factory girl, comes to see the Hon. Mary Carter with a bitter complaint that since her young man, Private Dawkins, wounded in the hospital, has been made much of by Miss Carter he has been discontented with her, Gertie’s dress and the ways in general of his natural surroundings. Miss Carter first mollifies her by telling her that her own young man has been killed and then points out that Dawkins new dislike of flashy necklaces etc. may be due to what he has seen of French women’s dress. Then she persuades Gertie to make a few alterations in her attire and when Dawkins comes to tea and finds her he is delighted and they are all good friends. The piece is charming in its way.
