Read Narrative
The revue was staged at the Empire into November. It included music by Herman Finck and stage production was by Tom Reynolds. Performers included: Regine Flory, Mabel Russell, Kathleen Clifford, Amy Augarde, Ferne Rogers, Ralph Lynn, Spencer Trevor, Fred Groves, Tom Payne, James Godden, Julien Henry, A H Majilton. The revue 'positively teems with incident, but it is not merely with the gay side of life that it has to do, for the tragic element has more than one introduction. In the latter connection there is an intensely strong episode which is supposed to take place in a Belgian cottage in the firing line, wherein is shown in all its horror the suffering endured by two women in the hands of drunken and licentious Uhlans. [...] It serves to remind that War is War, and not child's play, and that the debt to be paid is heavy indeed.' ('The Stage', 22 October 1914)
