Agathe à Petrograd
Examiner of Plays' Summary:
A well-written little French play with a patriotic motive. Agathe is a French singer in Petrograd. An attaché at the French Embassy who has written a song for her comes to her dressing room and tells her that a gang of spies has been arrested all except the chief, an Austrian posing as a Russian. Enter Numa Zerlich, her lover; he goes out after a love scene leaving his pocket-books; she finds it in proof that he is the spy in question and when he returns she shoots him. Meanwhile she has sung her song to her compatriot: there are two alternatives of it one a French version of 'Your King and Country', the other a medley of well-known airs with patriotic lines. There is nothing whatever to object to in the piece. Recommended for license. G. S. Street.
