MARRIED BENEATH HIM
A COMEDY IN FOUR ACTS
MARY ELIZABETH BRADDON
Edited by Jennifer Carnell
Married Beneath Him was Braddon's attempt at a modern society comedy. Cited as a source for George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, Braddon's heroine is a circus performer who marries a lord. Polly's husband, Lord Hunstanton, is embarrassed by the very qualities which attracted him to her in the first place, and tries to keep her circus family apart from his own aristocratic relations - with comic results.
Only a few copies of this play were published in 1882, and the Sensation Press edition also includes Braddon's essay, 'Fifty Years of the Lyceum Theatre.'
This edition is limited to 200 copies.
