Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A bright little war-time sketch of the making and breaking of a ridiculous engagement between a sentimental VAD and the bluff private whom she has been nursing, and whose half-hearted proposal she has accepted chiefly in order to prevent his relapse after shell-shock. The breaking off is effected by the mother of the unsuitable fiancé, the outraged Lady Fatiboreham and the equally indignant Mrs Briggs, each of whom regards her offspring as the victim of a designing sweetheart. The characterization, both of the silly young people and of their more sensible elders, is neat and the humour of the situation is both natural and clean. Recommended for licence. Ernest A. Bendall
