Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This 'comedy for women and children' is very prettily written and contains much wisdom. The pixies steal a baby. It is well cared for but mother Goose explains the usual stupid way in which babies are treated and the well-meaning pixies follow the advice. Then Matron comes, puts things right efficiently and proposes to take the baby into a eugenic institution. Its mother arrives and protests and the pixies summon England to decide. England decides for mother, but gives a sound exhortation on the improvement of the homes of the poor and so forth. Wisdom sweetened by pretty dances and dialogue. Recommended for licence. G. S. Street
