Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

The ‘cushy job’ is that of a playful corporal and his gay captain in their control of a recruiting office, to which there resort a charwoman of much humour who is under the impression that it is a registry for servants, a flapper much inclined to flirtation with a second lieutenant, a comic Yiddisher and a number of nondescript damsels aptly addressed as ‘subaltern snathers’. There is no serious breach of military discipline in the oddly conducted office and the fun of the chaff all round is quite inoffensive in its light-hearted way. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall
