"E" Company in Douglas

The Era (London, England), Saturday, July 26, 1884; Issue 2392.

GRAND THEATRE. – Manager, Mr. Alfred Hemming. – Inspired by the enormous success attending the production of Iolanthe last week, Mr. Hemming has placed before the residents and visitors of the Island the æsthetic opera Patience. The piece is splendidly staged, and is produced with a completeness highly gratifying to the audience and creditable to the management.

Mr. Albert James represents Bunthorne, and Mr. R. Fairbanks, Grosvenor. The officers of the Dragoons are played by Messrs. Albert Christian, F.L. Scates, and J. Duncan Young. The lady characters are taken by Misses Millie Vere, Florence Terriss, Lucy Carr Shaw, Isabelle Muncey, and Bessie Wilkinson.

The production has been an enormous success, the house being crowded nightly.
