Synopsis

What Every Woman Knows is the title of a four-act play written by J. M. Barrie. The show debuted at the Duke of York's Theatre in London on September 3,1908. It ran for 384 performances. It transferred to the Hicks Theatre on December 1,1908. It was first produced in America by Charles Frohman in 1908 on Broadway, at the Empire Theatre in New York City, and starred Maude Adams and Richard Bennett. The play was later adapted into a 1934 film starring Helen Hayes and Brian Aherne. Written before universal suffrage in a time when women were still legally considered the property of their fathers or husbands, the play posits that "every woman knows" she is the invisible power responsible for the successes of the men in her life.
