Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is ‘an imaginary evolution of the sexes caused by the war’ etc. and is very poor and pointless stuff. The stage is divided in half and shows us Bertie’s sitting room and Percy’s bedroom. They are idiotically effeminate Bertie has a manservant in a funny apron and Percy a maid servant in masculine coat etc. she give him warning to go and work in munitions. Both idiots ring up their tailors and order absurdly feminine suits. They then talk on the telephone with one another like two ultra-silly young women about their clothes and so on, and people being ‘cats’ and so forth. It is stupid fooling and to my taste offensive. But no sort of real harm is indicated or intended. Recommended for license. G. S. Street
