    1. [These notes were made in 1983; play dates from 1854:]. Read for exams. A brief two-acter, self-referential, and terribly sentimental (o welcome relief from Restoration comedy!) Sanctity of marriage, and the wicked actress proves to have a heart of gold. Colley Cibber appears as the representative of days (and manners) gone by. Apparently popular - it ran 102 nights.
