Can you sue someone for breaking off an engagement? In Gilbert and Sullivan’s courtroom farce Trial by Jury, it’s a very serious crime! The fickle and bigoted defendant, Brad, has fallen in love with another woman and has jilted the plaintiff, the beautiful Angelina. Unfortunately for Brad, all of the members of the jury (and the judge) have fallen for Angelina themselves. Brad proposes that in order to solve the conflict, he “marry this lady today and the other tomorrow,” which, naturally, Angelina objects to. Ultimately, the resolution that pleases everyone is for the judge to marry Angelina himself!
