In this lively and engaging four-act play, Peter Pan author J. M. Barrie tackles the touchy subject of women's roles in marriage with his trademark wit and insight. In an agreement more akin to a business transaction than a whirlwind romance, the Wylies secure the engagement of their good-hearted but plain daughter Maggie to an up-and-coming law student. Over the years, Maggie quietly works her magic behind the scenes, engineering her husband's stratospheric rise. But will it be enough to win his love and respect?
