|20 May 1918||Back to the Wife and Home [Home from the Trenches]||Professional|
‘Topical drama is again the fare the Nottingham Grand Theatre next week, viz.: Mr. Arthur Jefferson’s latest production, “Home from the Trenches”. The characters include a pro- German profiteer, a shirker and a cad, a soldier who did his bit in the Boer War and five members of the Metropolitan Police’. Nottingham Journal, 18 May 1918. ‘Of war-time plays there is seemingly no end. Still, “Home from the Trenches”, which Mr. Will Glaze’s company brings to the Grand this week, is worthy of a place. Profiteers and shirkers are both much in evidence and duly discredited. Mr. B. Wilson interprets Corporal Devaison [sic, Dennison] with discrimination, and Miss Ada Oakley imparted the necessary sympathy and charm to the character of his hapless wife’. Nottingham Journal, 18 May 1918.
|28 Oct 1918||Billy's Mother||Professional|
'The piece, which possesses many attractions out of the ordinary, is cleverly staged by Mr. W.H. Glaze's "standard" company....' ('Nottingham Journal', 29 October 1918, p. 3)
