"The Gamester (1753)" is an 18th-century play by an English dramatist and writer Edward Moore. His "Gamester" is a domestic drama, highlighting how the problem of gambling can ruin family life. It tells of the Beverley family, in which the husband is a weak, easily manipulated, simple man who feels guilty about his ruining habit but does nothing to alter it. The wife is a typical woman allowing this all to happen. The scenes are full of suspense and drama, which makes the play an interesting read. Notably, "The Gamester" was the first play in the English drama depicting regular people rather than exalted subjects taken from history and mythology.
