description -

Originally written in 1890 when she was nine years old, she rediscovered it in 1917 and published it with the support of J. M. Barrie almost exactly as it had been originally written, with childish spelling and grammatical mistakes. An exceptionally popular book, The Young Visiters was reprinted 18 times in 1919 and was quickly adapted for the stage, being first performed in London in 1920 before being transferred to New York. 


plot -

Alfred Salteena, an "elderly man of 42", has invited 17-year-old Ethel Monticue to stay with him. They receive an invitation to visit Alfred's friend, Bernard Clark, which they readily accept. Bernard is "inclined to be rich". Shortly after their arrival, Ethel and Bernard become attracted to each other.

Alfred seeks Bernard's advice on how to become a gentleman. Bernard is doubtful that this can be managed, but writes an introduction to his friend the Earl of Clincham. Alfred excitedly rushes off to London to visit the Earl, leaving Ethel alone and unchaperoned with Bernard...
