Comment on this story on the

'Engaged' by W S Gilbert (of Gilbert & Sullivan fame) is a Victorian extravaganza of an evening, opening on 18th May and running until 25th May with a matinee on Sunday 19th May at The Questors.

This little known piece is a farcical comedy set in 1870, with money, love and marriage proposals a plenty. On the Scottish borders, the canny locals augment their economy by derailing express trains from London. Into this wanders wealthy bachelor Cheviot Hill, a man incapable of meeting a pretty young woman without proposing to her. Within minutes he has proposed to one and accidentally married another.

The Questors Playhouse has been transformed into a Victorian theatre, with lighting, sound effects and live music as it would have been performed at the time - there's even a 'music hall style' MC.

And there is also pre-show and interval entertainment in the Foyer with songs from Mr Sullivan and others of the period.
