Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A good little comedy of two soldiers’ wives. One is a lady, but her husband who has enlisted early had remained a private. The other started life as a ‘general’ but her husband had risen to be a major. The private’s wife advertises for another officer’s wife to share her flat and the major’s wife turns up. She takes offence from the other’s incautiously speaking of social position, but a newspaper arrives with an account of a gallant action done by their two husbands together, and they are promptly reconciled and the major’s wife makes a jolly little speech about women as well as men sticking together and not bothering about class distinctions. An excellent moral. Recommended for license. G. S. Street
