21 Oct 1918 The AlsatiansUnknown
28 Oct 1918 The PacifistAmateur
Read Narrative
Performed by: George Pickett (Richard Brunner), Dorothy Wilmer (Dr Madge Verrinder), Phyllis Manners (Mrs Garritt), Edith Madelle (A Poor Woman), Harry Gilbey (Sergeant ? Mardan): 'one might reasonably presume Mr Brandon's latest contribution to be a treatise founded upon the pacifist 'question'. The piece, which came in for a fair share of favour on Monday evening, is, however, yet another addition to the long list of spy plays already before the public." | "The finale is distinctly good, but the author should have something more convincing to lead up to it. Several of the situations are rather threadbare and stand in need of strengthening.' (Stage, 31 October 1918). Other acts on the same bill were: Lockhart's Elephants, Will Lacey, Caron Troupe, Laura Novea, Irene May, Divina, Foot-Gers.
