What Every Woman Knows by James M. Barrie
What Every Woman Knows by J.M. Barrie, 1908. From the man who brought us Peter Pan, this is generally regarded to be Barrie’s best play! If you’re wondering what the title references, it’s quite simple: just that women rule the world and we’d all be better off if the men got out of their way and let them do it. In this charming and rarely seen comedy, Maggie Wylie is pushing 30 and unmarried. Her father and brothers broker a deal to send a struggling scholar through school if he promises to marry Maggie. With her guidance, he quickly becomes a celebrated Member of Parliament, but never fully appreciates how much he owes her until it’s almost too late.
