'Quality Street' is a comical play by J. M. Barrie. The play follows two sisters, Phoebe and Susan, as they start a school for 'genteel children', trying to get the attention of an old suitor who went away to war.
The play was written before Barrie's famous 'Peter Pan', and it opened on Broadway in 1901, with the cast including Seymour Hicks, Ellaline Terriss, Marion Terry, and Irene Rooke.
J. M. Barrie is best known for his work 'Peter Pan'. His other works, including this play, were popular, but often overshadowed by the success of 'Peter Pan'.
Illustrated by Hugh Thomson. Thomson was an Irish illustrator, who did pen-and-ink illustrations for editions of works by Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and J. M. Barrie.
