This critical edition of two of George Coleman's plays contains an introductory essay evaluating the plays in terms of their literary history and their own merits as lively works for the stage. At the same time, this essay offers a re-evaluation of mid-18th century comedy in general, emphasising that the anti-sentiment movement began nearly 20 years earlier than is generally supposed.
