Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price When the amorous Sir Harcourt Courtly prepares to wed an heiress several decades his junior, he hasn't reckoned on the superior charms of her cousin, the foxhunting Lady Gay Spanker... Boucicault, the Irish genius of London theatre in the age of Dickens, wrote the brilliantly funny London Assurance in 1841 and thereby created in Sir Harcourt and Lady Spanker two of the great comic roles of the English stage. A classic English comedy of manners that borrows from Sheridan and anticipates Oscar Wilde, the play is a small comedic masterpiece and is regularly revived. Edited and introduced by Trevor R. Griffiths
