Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a capital bit of propaganda. Alf comes home on leave and finds his little sister, at work on aeroplanes, going on strike - she doesn't know why - and his young woman, also earning good money, buying expensive hats, and nothing put into war bonds. So he gives them some straight talk, the results which is that is sister goes back to work, his girl throws away the new hat, and his old mother puts savings in the war instead of buying a new carpet. It is all done humorously and with plenty of observation. Recommended for Licence G. S. Street
