  • W.S. Gilbert


The Florentine Players present W.S. Gilbert’s most popular work, “Engaged.”

The play is a burlesque of romantic drama and is written in the “topsy-turvy” satiric style of many of Gilbert’s Bab Ballads and the Savoy Operas: one character pledges his love, in the most poetic and romantic language possible, to every single woman in the play; the innocent Scottish rustics are revealed to be making a living through throwing trains off the lines and then charging the passengers for services, and, in general, romance is gladly thrown over in favor of monetary gain.
