Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

Bill, a cockney and jock, a highlander, are billeted in France on a young woman who is really English but pretends to be French to enjoy their attempts at the language. There is some simple fun out of jock’s making a pudding and so forth. Jock goes behind a screen and hands over his kilt for the girl to inspect, appearing in a table-cloth - top of p.6. This is a stupid joke, but he really hands over a second kilt and wears his all the time and I do not think any harm is meant. A billeting officer comes on and makes ridiculous love to the girl pp7 and 8. I hardly think that need be objected to on the ground of disrespect to officers; they can hardly be so sacrosanct in these days of familiarity with them. Recommended for license. G. S. Street
