A pretty front cover to this programme printed on two sides of green card with gold highlighting to the cover design. The play was written by George Sims in collaboration with Henry Pettitt and had over 500 performances at the Adelphi. Mr Sims (1847 – 1922) had a long career as a journalist, poet, dramatist and novelist with a strong interest in social conditions of the time. We would probably recognise him as the author of the line ‘It is Christmas day in the workhouse……’

Condition Code: 3-4. Although the card has been joined with cellotape down the middle and with a little damage to the card on the reverse, it is in otherwise very good condition.
