Respected London magistrate Mr. Posket has never done anything shocking in his life; which only makes it more surprising when his stepson, Cis, manages to coax him into an ill-fated night on the town.

131 editions published between 1893 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his best known social drama, Arthur Wing Pinero attacks the hypocrisy and myth surrounding women in second marriages. Despite the warnings of his friends, the widowed Mr. Tanqueray chooses to marry a lower class woman with a scandalous history. The new Mrs. Tanqueray must struggle to win over her new stepdaughter as she attempts to find balance in her mismatched marriage. 'The Second Mrs. Tanqueray' expertly utilises the melodramatic convention of the Woman with a Past to examine the social and gender politics of late Victorian England. The play's premiere in 1893 made its lead actress, Paula Campbell, a star

Famous actress Rose Trelawney is willing to give up anything for her sweetheart, Arthur - even her successful theatre career. Out of the spotlight, however, Rose discovers that the real world is not to her taste. Desperate to escape the tedium of her life, she abandons her husband and returns to the stage, only to discover that her stint in reality has left her unable to perform in popular melodramas. Pinero's comedy premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 1898; it shows the transition from the melodrama popular in the mid-nineteenth century to the more realistic drawing room comedies of a later period

Mrs. Pierpoint and her daughter, Ethel, visit Zoe Blundell to inquire about the possibility of Leonard Ferris as a suitor for Ethel. Mrs. Pierpoint wants Zoe?s opinion because Leonard is one of Zoe?s tame robins, a group of male friends and admirers who gathers around Zoe. Unknown to the Pierpoints, Zoe?s marriage is breaking up and Leonard is sexually attracted to Zoe. Zoe at first believes her relationship with Leonard is harmless because she feels much, much older than he. Leonard is thirty-two years old, five years younger than Zoe, but he is a ?fresh, boyish young man? and Zoe is a ?mature woman.? Zoe?s husband, Theodore, is forty-six years old. Zoe?s perspective reflects society?s double standard that an older man may be interested in a younger woman but an older woman should not be interested in a younger man. After the Pierpoints leave, Leonard arrives to see Zoe and confesses he does not want to marry anyone, although he is attracted to Ethel because she reminds him of Zoe
