Last five observations
- To Bullen & Bruce production of The Poor Gentleman, by Mr Colman, Theatre Market Deeping, started 30th May 1842: “The performance was under the patronage of the Odd Fellows. The house was crowded to suffocation. During the epilogue, the whole of the gallery came down with a fearful crash, burying every soul in the boxes beneath. The scene was dreadful , and the screams most appalling until the extent of the injury was known. Ladies were dug out of the fallen timbers, with ribs broken, shoulders dislocated, severe contusions, and blood running in streams from hundreds, but providentially no life was lost. Great blame is at ached to the carpenter who erected the building.”
- To Thomas Shaftoe Robertson Lincoln company production of Everyone has his fault, by Elizabeth Inchbald, Theatre Lincoln, started 30th October 1811: “This production was for the Benefit of Mr Degville who was in prison for debt.”
- To Mrs Robertson's company production of Charles II; or, the Merry Monarch, Theatre Peterborough, started 16th November 1841: “Mrs Martyn had visited her husband in Stamford, injured in a production the previous week. Chilled by the weather and depressed about her husband’s injury, she was persuaded to take some laudanum. Initially this had the desired effect but unfortunately she had taken too large a dose and whilst performing as Eloia in ”The Mountain Sylph” she fell senseless on the stage during the performance. A stomp he pump was applied however she was still too ill to perform at the Wednesday production.”
