(4.9 stars; 4 reviews)

A ghost story and a haunting story of ageless love. Identified by The Guardian as number 10 on its list of the "Forgotten Plays" that it hoped would be revived. Supposedly looked at by Hitchcock as potential movie material.

Hauntingly Beautiful

(5 stars)

This is my favorite J M Barrie play. The first half has comedy, mystery, and sentimental romance, but it's the second half that really shines, where you get moments of beauty and grief mixed together. Heartbreaking, but full of warmth. Also, this is the finest cast of performers I've heard on a Librivox play. Standing ovation to all of you!
