Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

An amusing little domestic sketch of the trouble into which a confirmed loafer gets through playing at being a soldier, in the uniform of a relation who, unlike him, has enlisted instead of living upon his wife's earnings. The result of his momentary masquerade is so awkward that to escape from it he finds himself compelled to accept the job of work which he has hitherto shrieked. Recommended for license, Ernest A. Bendall
