Harry Sims is a successful man. An English Gentleman. King of his own Castle. Business is booming and his beautiful, doting wife does whatever she is told – as well she should; he is worth half a million pounds.

On the eve of receiving a Knighthood, his domestic kingdom is threatened by the arrival of a hired typist; an independent woman who proves to be an unwelcome blast from his past.

From the author of Peter Pan comes a grown-up Edwardian comedy with a distinctly modern view. In our era of Trump’s ego and gender politics, J.M. Barrie’s The Twelve Pound Look remains as relevant today as in 1910.

“A subversive playlet that disavows the notion of Barrie as a whimsical sentimentalist”  The Guardian

“This feminist comedy owes a lot to Ibsen and in particular A Doll’s House”  British Theatre Guide
