The original text
A short play (skit or sketch?) called A Bachelor's Dream by Hamilton Coleman was first copyrighted in Chicago in 1913.
Boonzaier (1923) mentions two South African performances of a variety sketch by an unnamed author also called A Bachelor's Dream. Possibly a burlesque of the novel or an early version of Coleman's text?
