Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a humorous domestic sketch to be played in the Walloon dialect. Its title, as translated above, refers to the innocent fraud of the heroine, who, when caught by her father entertaining her lover has pretended that he is an upholsterer called in to take away a broken armchair. The lover accordingly departs with the chair, but is discovered to be a locksmith and not an upholsterer. Thereupon the girl shouts after him the request which gives the homely trifle its name. Pointless, except presumably in its local characterisation; but quite harmless. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall.
