The Admirable Crichton : A Comedy
by James Matthew Barrie

Once a month, Lord Loam encourages his servants to enter the drawing room for tea. This ritual defiance of tradition disturbs Crichton, the butler, who regards the class system as the natural outcome of a civilized society. When the entire household is shipwrecked and stranded on a desert island, a new social order emerges ― with comic results for master and servant.
This classic English comedy, written by the author of Peter Pan, combines light entertainment with serious undertones concerning the class structure of British society during the early twentieth century.
