‘Quality Street’ by J. M. Barrie

quality_street_1706.jpgTwo sisters living on Quality Street set up and run a school for children after the local doctor heads off to fight Napoleon. Ten years later he returns, thinking that all the adventures have been his, and that the old life in Quality Street has waited, as in a sleep, to be resumed on the day of his return. Katharine Hepburn starred in a movie version made in 1927. The Quality Street chocolates were named after the play.
