Event Comment: New Scenes, Dresses and Decorations for the dances. [No after money.] The New Grand Ballet, call'd the Turkish Pirate, and the Comic Entertainment of Dancing, the Laundress's Visiting Day were perform'd last Monday at Drury Lane, with uncommon applause. The Scenery was well contriv'd, the habits very elegant, and the dance in a taste particularly agreeable. The comic entertainment is a fine piece of low humour, the various characters were well represented and afforded a great deal of Mirth; Sig Salomon especially, in the character of the woman's taylor, show'd a great deal of a good comedian as well as an excellent dancer, and the whole was greatly approv'd of.--London Courant; or New Advertiser, 31 Dec

II. Madrid; with a View of an Hotel and a Conventv. Procession of Nuns and Friars. Chorus. Agnes, the daughter of Count Lindenbergh, discovered at the lattice.

A Forest at Midnight, with a distant Hovelv. Enter Baptist (one of the Banditti) disguised as a woodman. The carriage with Raymond and Theodore is seen to break down. Claud, pointing to the Hovel, informs them they may there find shelter for the night. IV. The Inside of the Hovelv. Maugerette and her Child discovered. Raymond and Theodore are introduced by Baptist. Theodore is shewn to his room by Maugerette. Robert and Jaques (sons to Baptist) enter armed, making a servile obedience to Raymond, who is conducted to his chamber by Robert. V. The Bed-room prepared for Raymondv. Maugerette wishing to preserve the life of Raymond from the assassins, conveys a Pillow stained with blood upon his bed, thereby to inform him of his danger. She conceals herself. Raymond retires to rest, but is prevented by finding the bloody Pillow, and struck with horror, falls into a swoon. Robert enters, attempts to murder him, is prevented by Maugerette; and Raymond, at her request, retires. VI. The Lower Apartment of the Hovelv. Robert informs his father and brother of the ineffectual attempt on the life of Raymond, who is brought in by Maugerette. A knocking is heard without. Agnes (who has been also benighted in the forest) is led in by Claud, attended by Servants. Supper is prepared. Opiates are mixed with the wine. Agnes drinks, and falls into a slumber. Maugerette begs Raymond not to drink, but to put on the semblance of sleep. Baptist sends Robert and Jaques to secure the servants, who have retired; and supposing Raymond at rest, prepares to murder him. Raymond seizes him, and Baptist falls by the hand of Maugerette, who points out a secret avenue, through which she, taking her child, Raymond and Agnes escape, followed by Theodore. VII. Inside of Lindenbergh Castlev. The mother of Agnes, the late Countess, pourtrayed in the habit of a Nun. The Count discovered viewing the picture with agitation; kneels to implore forgiveness for the Murder. Agnes brought in by Raymond, is introduced to the present Countess. She becomes enamoured of him, offers him her Picture, which he rejects with scorn. VIII. The Chamber of Agnesv. Portrait of a Nun, with a wound upon her breast, a Lamp, Dagger, and a Rosary on her arm. Agnes enamoured of Raymond, enters, and prepares to draw his Portrait. Raymond entering unperceived, throws himself at her feet, and obtains a promise of her hand. He requests an explanation of the picture of the bleeding Nun. She informs him (in a Song) 'tis the resemblance of a Spectre which haunts the Castle every fifth year. The Count and Countess approach; and in anger order Raymond to quit the castle. IX. The Outside of the Castlev. Raymond, about to depart, is diverted by the sound of a Mandoline. A paper is lowered by Agnes from the Castle, containing a drawing of the Nun, with the following Scrole: "When the castle-bell tolls One. Expect me like this bleeding Nun." X. The Outside of the Castle, as beforev. Raymond descends the Wall; the Clock strikes One; the Gates fly open; the apparition of the Nun comes from the Castle. Raymond (supposing it Agnes) follows in extasy. Theodore approaching is met by Agnes in the habit of the Nun. Agitated by the apparent neglect of Raymond, they retire. XI. A Dreary Woodv. Raymond, following the spectre (still supposing it Agnes), attempts to embrace it, when suddenly vanishing, a Cloud rises from the earth bearing the following inscription: "Protect the Child of the Murder'd Agnes." XII. The Mountainsv. Robert, Jaques and Claud (the Robbers) discovered at the grave of Baptist. Theodore and Agnes enter. Agnes is seized and borne into the Cavern. XIII. A Woodv. Theodore and Maugerette meet Raymond, and inform him of Agnes being seized by the Robbers. They hasten to her rescue. XIV. Inside of the Cavernv. The three Robbers cast lots for the possession of Agnes. She becomes the prize of Robert. He attempts to seize her. She resisting, he aims a stiletto at her breast. At this instant Raymond, Theodore and Maugerette rush in. Robert falls by the dagger of Raymond, Jaques by the sword of Theodore, and Claud by a pistol from the hand of Maugerette. XV. The Castle of Don Felix. Raymond presents Agnes to his Father, who joins their hands; and the Piece concludes with aFinale and Spanish Fandango-.

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

Event Comment: The Duke's Company. The date of the first production is not known, but the date 31 May 1681 on a copy in the Ohio State University Library, representing Luttrell's purchase of a copy, argues for a performance initially in April or early May 1681. See Wilson, Six Restoration Play-Dates, p. 222

Performances

Mainpiece Title: Henry The Sixth: The First Part; With The Murder Of Humphrey Duke Of Glocester

Performance Comment: Edition of 1681: Prologue-; King Henry the Sixth-Jos. Williams; Humphrey Duke of Glocester-Batterton; Cardinal-Harris; Richard Plantagenet-D. Williams; Duke of Suffolk-Smith; Queen Margaret-Lady Slingsby; Elianor-Mrs Batterton; Epilogue-.
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
