Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

The heroine of this amusing war-time comedietta is a gushing widow with a weakness for correspondence with "lonely soldiers" much to the annoyance of her fiance, a dug-out Colonel. One of her lonely ones suddenly turns up at her house, fresh from the trenches, to the tune of "Come and Cuddle Me," a ditty which he obviously expects the gusher to join. Just when she is getting scared with the result of her foolish friendliness the Colonel luckily intervenes, and "Bert", who of course means no harm is sent down to tea in the more appropriate society of Milady's maid. Harmless fun, at the expense of an amicable foible. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall
