10.6" x 8.5"

First edition of this romantic comedy, featuring an "old maid" heroine who determines to tease her crush by disguising herself as a younger woman, only for her game to become a little too real. First produced in 1901 before Barrie became famous for Peter Pan, this play contains all the elements of a classic romance, including an HEA. With a high degree of humor and a dialogue-driven plot meant for performance, it is more accurately compared to romantic comedies in modern film.
