Harry Sims is a successful man. An English Gentleman. King of his own Castle. Business is booming and his beautiful, doting wife does whatever she is told – as well she should; he is worth half a million pounds.
On the eve of receiving a Knighthood, his domestic kingdom is threatened by the arrival of a hired typist; an independent woman who proves to be an unwelcome blast from his past.

“A subversive playlet that disavows the notion of Barrie as a whimsical sentimentalist” The Guardian
