30 Sep 1918 Back to the Wife and Home [Home from the Trenches]Professional
Read Narrative
‘Splendid Holiday Attraction. Mr. Will H. Glaze Presents the Great Moral Lesson Play, entitled “Home From The trenches”. By Arthur Jefferson. A Play dealing with the present-day Social Problem, exposing, frankly and fearlessly, the social dangers besetting innocent girls and young married women, which everyone interested, both in their own welfare and the moral teaching and guidance of our future motherhood, should see’. Daily Record, 30 September 1918. ‘Mr. Arthur Jefferson’s play, “Home from the Trenches,” which occupies the stage at the Metropole, deals frankly with the Social Problem in a telling and yet delicate manner. The story is one of great interest and power, and presents a great moral lesson for all. Mr. Will H. Glaze’s company has been admirably chosen, all interpreting their parts with talent and discrimination’. Daily Record, 1 October 1918. Several managers thanked for (re)booking the play, including at the Met. Glasgow ‘where last visit we played to well over £600’. The Stage, 16 January 1919.
