The Lucky One

THE LUCKY ONE followed MR. PIM PASSES BY and THE TRUTH ABOUT BLAYDS as Mint’s third production by A.A. Milne—best remembered today as the creator of Winnie the Pooh. The play tells the timeless story of antagonism between two brothers: Gerald, who stands in the sun and Bob, who stands in Gerald’s shadow. When Bob finds himself in serious legal trouble, he turns to Gerald for rescue. When Gerald fails to come through, years of simmering resentment boil over in a confrontation that is as stirring as it is surprising.

At once ironic and fanciful, the work of A.A. Milne spanned novels, light verse, essays, and children’s literature. Yet beyond his beloved Winnie-the-Pooh books, Milne wrote over two dozen plays marked by “enchanting ingenuity” (E.V. Lucas), skillful craftsmanship, and subtle wit. Peering beneath the polite surfaces and semblances of English life, Milne concealed a serious and penetrating eye under a charmingly light touch.

Echoes of The War

With ECHOES OF THE WAR, Mint Theater once again turned its spotlight on an author whose indelible achievement in writing for children had overshadowed his remarkable work for adults: J.M. Barrie, best known for Peter Pan.

James Matthew Barrie (Playwright 1860-1937) If J. M. Barrie had only written Peter Pan, its extraordinary and enduring popularity would testify to his talents as a dramatist.  As it is, Peter Pan, which celebrates its 100-year anniversary this year, now only obscures Barrie’s gifts as a dramatist of significance.  In his lifetime, Barrie was much admired by his peers and even regarded as a genius, however his work fell out of favor in later years. His full length plays include Quality Street, The Admirable Crichton, What Every Woman Knows, Dear Brutus and Mary Rose. One-act plays include The Twelve-Pound Look, The Will and A Well-Remembered Voice among many others.
