Book Description1918. One of the best known of Barrie's fantastic modern plays. Concerned with an aristocratic English family who revert to the state of Nature when shipwrecked on a desert island. While there they are willing slaves of their former butler, but on return to civilization the positions are shifted.Download Description"A moment before the curtain rises, the Hon. Ernest Woolley drives up to the door of Loam House in Mayfair. There is a happy smile on his pleasant, insignificant face, and thispresumably means that he is thinking of himself. He is too busy over nothing, this man about town, to be always thinking of himself, but, on the other hand, he almost never thinks of any other person. Probably Ernest's great moment is when he wakes of a morning and realises that he really is Ernest, for we must all wish to be that which is our ideal."
