Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A capital little play with a dash of real excitement in it. One Burney has persuaded Mrs Appleby to meet him in the Appleby's empty house at Hampstead, the family being at the seaside and she in London to see a dentist. She regrets the adventure and is for going away when a policeman appears, having found the hall door open. Then it is discovered that a dangerous German spy, who has shot a man and escaped, is hiding in the house. Burney shows abject cowardice and goes away and the policeman and Mrs Appleby capture the German between them, the policeman significantly commenting on the trouble people get into by visiting other men's houses in the owner's absences. Recommended for license, G. S. Street.
