Event Comment: The King's Company. Pepys, Diary: By one o'clock to the King's house: a new play, The Duke of Lerma, of Sir Robert Howard's: where the King and Court was; and Knepp and Nell spoke the prologue most excellently, especially Knepp, who spoke beyond any creature I ever heard. The play designed to reproach our King with his mistresses, that I was troubled for it, and expected it should be interrupted; but it ended all well, which salved all. The play a well-writ and good play, only its design I did not like of reproaching the King, but altogether a very good and most serious play

Performances

Mainpiece Title: The Great Favourite; Or, The Duke Of Lerma

Performance Comment: Edition of 1668: Prologue to the Duke of Lerma-Mrs Ellen Gwyn?, Mrs Nepp Knepp?; No actors' names; Epilogue-Mrs Ellen Gwyn?; Maria?-Mrs Gwyn?.
Event Comment: The United Company. The Prologue and Epilogue are printed in Miscellaneous Works, Written by His Grace, George, late Duke of Buckingham (London, 1704), pp. 9-13. There is no certainty that Buckingham wrote the adaptation itself, but, in view of his writing both the Prologue and Epilogue, it seems likely. The Epilogue alludes to Shaftesbury, who had taken refuge in Holland and who had died there on 21 Jan. 1682@3, suggesting that the play, if acted, was probably presented in February 1682@3 or soon thereafter. The adaptation was apparently never printed
