Description Described as a sensational drama of London life, "The Gayest of the Gay," at the Grand Opera House, certainly justifies its description. There is something sensational about every scene-something harrowing In every act. The play turns upon a series of misunderstandings between Jack Latimer, ne'er do well and broken gambler, in the first act, and his wife, Kate Latimer, and upon the villainies of her tempter, Hubert Steele.
