Event Comment: The Duke's Company. Pepys, Diary: To the Duke of York's House, and there went in for nothing into the pit, at the last act, to see Sir Martin Marr-all, and met my wife, who was there, and my brother, and W. Hewer and Willett, and carried them home, still being pleased with the humour of the play, almost above all that ever I saw


Mainpiece Title: Feign'd Innocence; Or, Sir Martin Marall

Event Comment: The King's Company. Pepys, Diary: My wife, and Mercer, who grows fat, and Willett, and I, to the King's house, and there saw The Committee, a play I like well


Mainpiece Title: The Committee

Event Comment: The King's Company. Pepys, Diary: My wife and Willett and I to the King's playhouse, and there saw Henry the Fourth; and contrary to expectation, was pleased in nothing more than in Cartwright's speaking of Falstaffe's speech about "What is Honour?"

Mainpiece Title: Henry The Fourth

Event Comment: The King's Company. Pepys, Diary: My wife, and I, and Willett, to the King's play-house, and there saw The Indian Emperour, a good play, but not so good as people cry it up, I think, though above all things Nell's ill speaking of a great part made me mad


Mainpiece Title: He Indian Emperour

Event Comment: The Duke's Company. Pepys, Diary: I and my wife and Willett to the Duke of York's house, and there saw the Tempest again, which is very pleasant, and full of so good variety that I cannot be more pleased almost in a comedy, only the seaman's part a little too tedious. Thence home, and there to my chamber, and do begin anew to bind myself to keep my old vows, and among the rest not to see a play till Christmas but once in every other week, and have laid aside #10, which is to be lost to the poor, if I do


Mainpiece Title: The Tempest
