Edition Notes

An adaptation of Los empeños de seis horas, "now assigned to Antonio Coello and not, as formerly, to Calderón."--Cambridge history of English literature, v. 8, p. 130.

"According to Pepys, it was acted at Lincoln's Inn Fields for the first time on 8 Jan, 1633. 'The play,' he says, 'in one word is the best for the variety, and the most excellent continuance of the plot to the end, that ever I saw, or think ever shall, and all possible, not only to be done in the time, but in most other respects very admittable and without one word of ribaldry."--Dictionary of national biography.

Prologue by Mr. Betterton; epilogues by Mr. Smith and Mr. Harris.
