Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

Like the author's other play, 'War in the Marshall Family' this one also contains a man, his brother, wife and aunt. It is equally childish and silly but has more plot to it. [...] The play is so childish that I can quite believe it never occurred to the author that the audience might speculate as to how far the brother was to take the husband's place. But it is so palpably innocent that this does not matter. Nick is only one night in the house and he and Eva say good night at bed-time. Nobody could possibly read any harm into the rubbish, which might have been written by a child of twelve. Recommended for Licence. G. S. Street
