Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This play begins with a 'back-chat' conversation between a Jew jeweller and a Scotchman who is going to be his partner. Then a customer comes and there is a long rigmarole about his having insulted a girl by giving her a pair of earrings and having to pay £500 for insulting her on pain of his wife's being sent a silver tea-pot which will disclose the transaction. It is stupid and rather pointless but quite harmless. Recommended for Licence. G. S. Street
