Charles  Macklin 

This  Afterpiece  - a short  play  to  follow  a main  production  - was  first  produced  in  1746 
and  was  based  on  Regnard's  comedy  le  Legetaire  Universel,  moving  from  scene  to 
scene  with  little  effort  at  logical  consistency  or  structure  but  treating  each  scene 
autonomously  for  its  own  comic  value.  The  rather  long  Prologue  makes  fun  of  the 
convention  of  18th  century  prologues  by  the  dodge  of  having  actors  chatting  as  though 
they  were  in  the  Pit  waiting  for  the  actors  in  the  main  play  to  dress  for  the  afterpiece.
