Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

An episode of the war of 1870. A young French soldier has to carry a despatch evading Prussians in a village. He does so by donning the dress of his uncle, a veteran of Napoleon, who, seeing that the Prussians are going to stop him, draws off their attention by going out in his nephew's uniform, and is shot. It is well written and even before the war there would have been no reason why it should not be Recommended for license. G. S. Street
