“Jane Annie” by J M Barrie and Arthur Conan Doyle

Giv­en the peo­ple behind it, it should have been a success.

It wasn’t.

“Jane Annie, or The Good Con­duct Award” was an opera writ­ten by J M Bar­rie (of “Peter Pan” fame) and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (of Sher­lock Holmes fame) with music by Ernest Ford, for the Savoy The­atre by Richard D’Oy­ly Carte. Four of the biggest names (Doyle, Bar­rie, D’Oy­ly Carte and the Savoy The­ater) in the Lon­don lit­er­ary and the­atri­cal cir­cles could­n’t save what would turn out to be the the­ater’s first true flop.
