Performance Comment: Parts-Ross, Shuter, Dunstall, Cushing, Weller, Miss Wilford, Mrs Walker, Smith, Dyer, Hull, Holtom, Murden, Miss Macklin, Mrs Mattocks; Prologue-Smith; Epilogue-Miss Wilford according to the Gazetteer and New Daily Advertiser; Lord Belmont-Ross; Sir Charles Somerville-Smith; Mr Belmont-Shuter; Elder Freeman-Hull; Southerne-Dunstall; Young Freeman-Dyer; Emily-Mrs Mattocks; Lady Mary-Miss Macklin; Lady Louisa-Miss Wilford; Lady Bridget-Mrs Walker (Genest, V, 106); Parts-Cushing, Weller, Holtom, Murden.

Dance: III: The Village Romps, as17651019

Event Comment: The United Company. The date of the first performance is not known, but Luttrell dated his copy of the separately-printed Prologue and Epilogue 5 April 1684 (J. W. Dodds, Thomas Southerne, p. 48). Very probably the play first appeared during the week of 31 March-5 April, immediately following Easter. The Prologue and Epilogue are reprinted in Wiley, Rare Prologues and Epilogues, pp. 191-94. This may have been the last new role William Smith undertook for some years; see Cibber, Apology, ed. Lowe, 1, 78-79, for the incident which prompted Smith's leaving the stage for awhile. One song, I never saw a face till now, with music by Captain Pack, is in The Theater of Music, the First Book, 1685; and another, O why did e'er my thoughts aspire, the music by R. King, is in the same collection. A third song, See how fair Corinna lies, the music by Captain Pack, is in A Collection of Twenty-Four Songs, 1685

Event Comment: [By Thomas Southerne.] Receipts: #93 10s. 6d. Victor, History of the Theatres, II, 152: I happened to be behind the Scenes the first Night of this Comedy, and was very sorry to find that the Audience did not take the Age, as well as the great Merit of this Author, into their Consideration, and quietly dismiss this last weak Effort to please them. When they were hissing dreadfully in fifth Act, Mr Rich, who was standing by Mr Southern, asked him, if he heard what the Audience were doifg? His Answer was, No, Sir, I am very deaf.
