DICKENS, Charles) LONDON. Theatre Royal, Sadler's Wells.
Playbill. (Our Mutual Friend.). On Saturday next, June 16th, will be produced, a dramatic adaptation of Charles Dickens' latest work, "Our Mutual Friend", entitled The Golden Dustman. With new scenery and powerful situations.
Nassau Steam Press. 1866. Double-width playbill, uplettered along central margin 'Any charge made for this bill is fraudulent'. An exceptionally well-preserved clean example. Bolton, Our Mutual Friend, no. 2. Theatrical adaptations of Our Mutual Friend were relatively few and far between, with none appearing during its initial serial run, and only eight reaching the stage before the decade was out. This version, written by the librettist Henry Brougham Farnie, concentrates primarily on the dust heap. Bolton notes that 'early performances lasted four and a half hours', but these were later curtailed. The main feature of the playbill is Watts Phillips' drama The Poor Strollers, concluding each night with W. Brough's 'brilliant burlesque' Papillonetta. The announcement for the forthcoming production of The Golden Dustman, with Nye Chart as acting manager, occupies the lower portion of the right-hand column.
