Event Comment: This work is advertised in The Loyal Protestant 22, 27, and 29 Aug. 1682: at Mrs Saffry's, a Dutch Woman's booth, over against the Greyhound Inne in West Smithfield. [Her first announcement calls the company "By an Approved Company"; the other two notices refer to it as "the first New-market Company." See Rosenfeld, The Theatre of the London Fairs, p. 6.] John Coysh paid #6 for a booth at the Fair (Rosenfeld, The Theatre of the London Fairs, p. 6). See also Morley, Memoirs of Bartholomew Fair, p. 222, for notice of the Indian Water Worksv. In Wit and Drollery (1682), p. 304, are verses on the Fair: @Here's the Whore of Babylon the Devil and the Pope,@The Girl is just agoing on the Rope@Here's Dives and Lazarus and the World's Creation,@Here's the Tall Dutch Woman the like's not in the Nation,@Here is the Booth where the High-Dutch Made is@Hear are the Bears that dance like any Ladies,@Tat, tat, tat, tat, tat says the little penny Trumpet@Here's Jacob Hall, that does so jump it, jump it.@Sound Trumpet Sound, for Silver Spoon and Fork,@Come here's your dainty Pit and Pork.@ [See also August 1680.

Role: Variety of Dances Actor: .
Event Comment: On the assumption that the run began on 28 June and extended twelve days (as Downes states), it would continue through 11 July. On 3 July a group of players entitled the Red Bull Company began a series of performances at Oxford. The performances are known through the entries in Anthony Wood's journal. For a discussion of the problems as to what actors these were, see Sybil Rosenfeld, "Some Notes on the Players in Oxford, 1661-1713", Review of English Studies, XIX (1943), 366. On this day the players acted Tu Quoque, in which, according to Richard Walden (Io Ruminans, 1662) Anne Gibbs acted Gertrude

Performances

Mainpiece Title: The Siege Of Rhodes, Part I

Event Comment: On this day arrived in London the news of the death of the King's sister, the Duchess of Orleans, which occured on 20 June 1670. According to The Bulstrode Papers (I, 144), 25 June 1670: The players are silenced dureing this tyme of sadness. [Probably acting ceased for at least six weeks, the customary period for silencing the companies when the Court went into full mourning. Nevertheless, the Duke's Company may have been permitted to act at Oxford. See Sybil Rosenfeld, "Some Notes on the Players in Oxford, 1661-1713," Review of English Studies XIX (1943), 366-67.

Performances

Event Comment: The Duke's Company acted at Oxford during this month, offering Cambyses and, presumably, other plays of which we have no record. See W. J. Lawrence, "Oxford Restoration Prologues," Times Literary Supplement, 16 Jan. 1930, p. 43, and Sybil Rosenfeld, "Some Notes on the Players in Oxford, 1661-1713," Review of English Studies, XIX (1943), 368

Performances

Event Comment: John Dryden wrote a Prologue to the University of Oxford and an Epilogue to the University of Oxford in 1674. The Prologue was apparently spoken by Hart, the Epilogue by Mrs Marshall. See also Sybil Rosenfeld, Some Notes on the Players in Oxford, 1661-1713, Review of English Studies, XIX (1943), 368

The Earl of Middleton to Sir George Etherege, 7 Dec. 1685: Every week there are plays at court. The last time Sir Fopling appeared with the usual applause, and the King was pleased to tell me that he expected you should put on your socks (Letterbook of Sir George Etherege, ed. Rosenfeld, p. 345)

Performances

Mainpiece Title: The Man Of Mode; Or, Sir Fopling Flutter

Event Comment: In 1686 at Oxford the Act was cancelled at a late moment, but the players performed nevertheless. In mid-July Anthony Leigh, acting in The Committee, added some lines to his role that created a commotion. See Sybil Rosenfeld, Some Notes on the Players in Oxford, p. 370; Memoirs of the Verney Family, ed. Margaret M. Verney (London, 1899), IV, 381; Anthony Clark, The Life and Times of Anthony Wood (Oxford, 1894), III, 192-93

Performances

Event Comment: The United Company. This performance is on the L. C. list, 5@147, p. 361: The King at ye Mistress. See also Nicoll, Restoration Drama, p. 351. There is no indication as to whether this performance was the premiere. As the play was licensed on 24 May 1687, the premiere may have been as late as 12 May, but possibly was earlier. Sir George Etherege to Will Richards, 19 May 1687: I have heard of the success of The Eunuch, and am very glad the town has so good a taste to give the same just applause to Sir Charles Sedley's writing, which his friends have always done to his conversation (Letterbook, ed. Rosenfeld, p. 212). Sir George Etherege to Middleton, 2O June 1687: I saw a play about ten years ago Called the Eunuch, so heavy a lump the players durst not charge themselves with the dead weight, but it seems Sir Charles Sedley has animated the mighty mass and now it treads the stage lightly (ibid., p. 227). [See also 26 March 1687 and season of 1676-77.] Thomas Shadwell, The Tenth Satyr of Juvenal (licensed, 25 May 1687.) Dedication to Sir Charles Sedley: Your late great obligation in giving me the advantage [presumably the third day's gain] of your comedy, call'd Bellamira, or the Mistress, has given me a fresh subject for my Thanks; and my Publishing this Translation affords me a new opportunity of owning to the world my grateful resentments to you. I am heartily glad that your Comedy (as I never doubted) found such success, that I never met with any Man of Sence but applauded it: And that there is abundance of Wit in it, your Enemies have been forced to confess....For the Judgment of some Ladies upon it that it is obscene, I must needs say they are Ladies of a very quick apprehension, and did not find their thoughts lye very much that way, they could not find more obscenity in that than there is in every other Comedy. A song, Thyrsis unjustly you complain, headed A Song in Bellamira, or, the Mistress. Set by Mr Tho. Shadwell, is in Vinculum Societatis, 1687 (licensed 8 June 1687)
