Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

An absurd but well-meant attempt to stimulate patriotism by a shining example. A British workman objects to his son Jimmy being a Boy Scout and talks anti-patriotic nonsense. Then suddenly the Germans are attacking London both with bombs and artillery and there is great noise and excitement 'off'. Things go badly with this until the situation is saved by Jimmy, who goes through the enemy's lines with important despatches, and the British workman enlists. I am afraid it is a little too far-fetched to do any good, but it can do no harm. Recommended for license. G. S. Street.
