The Era (London, England), Saturday, October 20, 1883; Issue 2352.

THEATRE ROYAL AND OPERA HOUSE. – Lessee, Mr. J. W. White. – The first performance of Mr. Cecil Noble's new play Shame was given here on the afternoon of Friday (12th inst.) before a large and friendly audience.

This week Patience is revisiting the scenes of former triumphs. We have so often commented on the excellence with which it is represented by Mr. D'Oyly Carte's company, that we need do nothing more than record the enthusiasm of the reception accorded to the popular artists, Misses Ethel M'Alpine, Fanny Edwards, Clara Deveine, Elsie Cameron, and J. Woodward; Messrs. George Thorne, Walter Fisher, Arthur Rousbey, James Sydney, and G.B. Browne.

Matrimony* is the opening piece, and in this Misses St. Maur and Annie Bernard, and Messrs. L. Vincent, H. Browning, and Sidney Price take part.

[Matrimony; or, Six and Six When Suilted = Six and Six by another name.]
