Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

Edith, being about to go out as a Red Cross nurse, informs her guardian, a doctor, that her father had done time for manslaughter. The father, by a strange coincidence, turns up and asks the doctor to pass him for active service in spite of his age: he was a Laing's Nek. The doctor, impressed by the man and the relationship, consents and also passes his servant, who is over age too. A real doctor would hardly do such things, but I think that does not matter much, and the play is well meant. Recommended for license, G. S. Street.
