Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A fresh and interesting, but amateurish, sketch of the strange adventure of an impudent and plucky Irish Colleen who has come to London in vague search of her brother, a wounded soldier. Peg is getting into trouble with a park-keeper through her impertinent way of demurring to his brusque demand for a penny for her chair. She is befriended in the dispute by a passing gentleman, who turns out to be an internationally important peer, acquainted with Peg’s brother and able to tell her that he has won the VC and is recommended for a commission. For his kindness Peg repays him by saving him, at the risk of her own life, from the bomb of a female spy, who has chosen this odd method and locale for this attempted assassination. The story is of course not less absurd than harmless: but the characterisation is true as well as telling. Recommended for License. Ernest A. Bendall.
