Two masterly and unfairly neglected short plays by W. S. Gilbert, England's leading 19th Century dramatist. 'Sweethearts’, a cynical comic masterpiece with timeless observations on the sexes, and ‘The Hooligan’, a brutal, yet blackly comic study of a condemned man’s final minutes that was a sensation at its debut in 1911.
