Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

The bright little lady brought home by tommy, a young corporal, as his wife from France, is left by him when he goes back to the trenches in the house of his father, a churlish provincial pacifist, by whom she is cordially hated. She is detested also by Tommy's female cousin, who has always wanted to marry him, and who now plots with her rascally brother, a doctor, against her innocent rival. By a series of most unlikely manoeuvres and chances this precious pair are enabled to throw all sorts of undeserved discredit upon the poor French wife, while the husband is abroad; and when he returns, wounded, they almost manage to prevent the success of the operation by which he is finally cured. There is little verisimilitude in the strained action, or exaggerated characterization [sic] of the crude melodrama, which is, however, quite free from offence. Recommended for licence. Ernest A. Bendall.
