Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A Colonel is awaiting a telephone message from the Cabinet as to the result of its meeting. This message a German spy is anxious to obtain; so he puts pressure on the Colonel's brother-in-law - whom he threatens to denounce as a forger - to induce his sister - the Colonel's wife - to secure and betray the secret. The colonel, discovering the treachery, gives his brother-in-law a revolver with a broad hint that he is to shoot himself. The hint is taken, and the curtain falls on a rather disappointing result as the German spy is allowed to go scot-free. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall
