Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This would have been thought a daring play thirty years ago, but even then I do not think any objection could have been taken to its production, as there is no unpleasantness of language and the moral is that people must pay grimly - sometimes - for light-hearted sins [...] I do not think the unconventional action will trouble anyone in these days and the play is Recommended for license.
