Girls In Uniform
Girls in uniform, a play in three acts; adapted from the German play Gestern und heute upon which the film Madchen in uniform is based; English adaptation by Barbara Burnham. Passions run high in a strict girls school

aka Children In Uniform. Go to http://en.wikipediaorg/wiki/Christa_Winsloe for A bio And history of the film/play background. Check reference 1 to see that the play was retitled for its 1932 London stage Appearance--that's probably where the "Children in Uniform" error got started. And if you go to: you'll see that A scene from the play, "Girls in Uniform", was published in "Scenes for Student Actors" compiled by Frances Cosgrove And published by Samuel French in 1934.
