Overview

This unique edition of The Admirable Crichton from Dead Dodo Vintage includes the full original text as well as exclusive features not available in other editions.

The Admirable Crichton is a comic stage play written in 1902 by J. M. Barrie.

The play deals with serious class issues that were controversial at the time, but does not seriously question the status quo. Barrie had considered a more controversial resolution – particularly an upbeat ending with Crichton and Lady Mary continuing their relationship – but decided "the stalls wouldn't stand it"

It was produced by Charles Frohman and opened at the Duke of York's Theatre in London on 4 November 1902, running for an extremely successful 828 performances. It starred H. B. Irving as Crichton and Irene Vanbrughas Lady Mary Lasenby.

In 1903, the play was produced on Broadway by Frohman, starring William Gillette as Crichton and Sybil Carlisle as Lady Mary.

George C. Tyler revived it at the New Amsterdam Theatre in New York in 1931 starring Walter Hampden as Crichton, Hubert Bruce at the Earl of Loam and Fay Bainter as Lady Mary Lasenby.

The play was revived in London in 1989 with Edward Fox as Crichton, and the newly knighted Rex Harrison as Lord Loam. Harrison's mentor Gerald Du Maurier played the nephew in the original production.

    Fascinating

    I found a reference to this play in one of Connie Willis' books. It's a look at how social privelege does not equate to ability. When a lord and his family are shipwrecked the butler becomes the undisputed leader. But when they return to England everyone hides the truth .
