Contribution to SA theatre

April 5, 11 & 19, 1861: Miss Blanche de Moultrie acted in the Officers of the Regiment's second play, Stirling Coyne's one-act farce, Urgent Private Affairs, (Mrs Polkinghorne).

North Lincoln Sphinx critique: "Miss Blanche de Moultrie's first appearance was hailed with applause, and deservedly so; a little more "aplomb," and a little more freedom of action, would soon cause this debutante to become a favourite."

(North Lincoln Sphinx, Vol 1, No 6, Grahamstown, April 25, 1861, page 75.)
