Pepys’ Shows, via Theatricaliafreshen anew

In reference to a production of Brennoralt, or The Discontented Colonel on 12th August 1667, Samuel Pepys noted:

“All alone to the King’s playhouse, and there did happen to sit just before Mrs. Pierce, and Mrs. Knepp, who pulled me by the hair; and so I addressed myself to them, and talked to them all the intervals of the play, and did give them fruit. The play is “Brenoralt,” which I do find but little in, for my part.”
