Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This little play is constructed out of the treatment in Jane Autsen's novel, of proposals for the hand of Elizabeth by her matchmaking mother. Its four scenes illustrate in the long formal speeches of the great novelist the firmness, the common sense, and the dry humour of the heroine, in her rejection of one of her suitors, and her snubbing of the aunt of another. It is neatly put together, and is of course wholly free from offence. Recommended for Licence. Ernest A. Bendall.
