Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a topical monologue, spoken by a weary woman worker at a military outfitters where she has been hemming a Union Jack. To dummies made up to represent our French, Russian and Belgian allies she discourses of various aspects of the war, in which her husband is fighting as a sailor. The moral of her spirited sermon is that, when the honours of final triumph come for the men who fight, there should be some for the women who stop at home for the hemming of the Flag. Effectively devised and written. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall
