The collection contains "Fanny's First Play," which was first published and performed anonymously, piquing audiences' curiosity as to the identity of the playwright. However, it did not take long for critics to recognize Shaw's unmistakable wit and humor. The play was wildly successful and was performed over 600 times, making it Shaw's longest-running play. The Irish playwright was the leading dramatist of his generation, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925.
