This is a unique edition of four "high society" Victorian comedies, currently enjoying revival on the London stage. The volume includes: Dion Boucicault's London Assurance, W. S. Gilbert's Engaged, Edward Bulwer-Lytton's Money, and Henry James's The High Bid. Each of the plays deals with marriage, tests of affection, and the power of money.
A critical introduction, a wide-ranging annotation, and an informative bibliography illuminate the plays' cultural contexts and theatrical potential for reader and performer alike.
