Scottish novelist and playwright Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937) is undoubtedly best known for his classic children's character Peter Pan, the very much-loved 'boy who wouldn't grow up'. Quality Street is an example of one of Barrie's earlier plays, which premiered in New York and London (where it proved especially popular) in 1901 and 1902 respectively. Set on Quality Street in a little English country town during the Napoleonic wars, this is the delightfully amusing story of Miss Phoebe Throssel (and her alter ego Miss Livvy, Phoebe's non-existent niece), and her fraught pursuit of love, in the form of one dashing Valentine Brown; or her pursuit, as Phoebe herself phrases it, of "every woman's birthright", namely "to be petted and admired" (p. 77).
