Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A simple pretty little idyll of the war and of two Belgian lovers. Gertrude is alone in a farm, disguised, having escaped from Louvain. Philippe, wounded, comes begging a bandage and wine. At first he does not recognise her she takes off her disguise; they fall into one another's arms. She wants him to stay, but he loves honour more and after hearing music celebrating a victory of our troops and the Belgians she lets him go. It is partly sung in pretty little verse.
