Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937), best remembered as the creator of Peter Pan, was a Scottish author and dramatist whose works have enjoyed frequent revivals in film and on stage. The 1917 production of his play, "Dear Brutus", was one in a long string of successes for Barrie. The play, set in the manor of a mysterious man called Lob, takes a group of ordinary men and women and asks the question: What might happen to a person given the opportunity to remake their life? The guests are whisked into a dream-like world where they are shown what their lives "might have been." Throughout the play, Barrie imparts to his audience deep and intriguing insight into human nature. He makes not only his characters, but his audience, question the role of fate versus the inherent nature of the individual, and the true responsibility we take in the path of our own lives.
