Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A pretty little trifle in celebration of the (to be hoped very speedy) restoration of Alsace to France. That is supposed to have happened on the conclusion of peace. An Alsatian girl and her young brother are in an English garden and talk about it. The carrier comes in with a box containing the boy's fiddle and the girl's national dress, which she puts on - off the stage, of course. It appears that the carrier, Tom, has done brave things in the war and is in love with the Alsatian girl but despairs of winning her. Then her big brother in a Zuave uniform appears and recognises in Tom the hero who had saved his life and all is well. In the course of the play the girl sings a French song or two, but in this case as they must obviously be sentimental or patriotic. I really do not think it necessary to send for them. Recommended for licence. G. S. Street.
