The play itself tells the story of struggling writers Harry Duvall, Jack Byron, and Charlie Fletcher. Harry and Jack decide to pull a scheme in which they swap identities - Harry becomes Jack, and Jack becomes Harry. They introduce themselves as one another to strangers, and in the second and third act of the play, become involved romantically with women while on a retreat to a lakeside mansion. The mismatched identities are the cause of the central drama in For Myself Alone, which is both comedic and dramatic in tone.
The text of the play itself is quite short, at less than 20 pages. The suggested run time for the play is 75 minutes, which seems long given the brief nature of the script.
The language used in For Myself Alone is certainly indicative of the fact it was written in the late 19th century. If presented in theatre today, it would thus make for an excellent period piece, or otherwise would need to be adapted for modern times.
If you enjoy reading dramatic works, For Myself Alone is a brief and light read and can easily be enjoyed in one sitting. It's suitability for presentation will depend on the goal of the production, however it contains enough intrigue to make for a winning story. Regardless of your intentions, this is an enjoyable work appropriate for all audiences.
