De Gebochelde, of De Moord in de Slotgracht van Tayhis ("The hunchback, or the murder in the moat of Tayhis") is a Dutch tragedy in by P. Regland (fl. )

Also referred to simply as De Gebochelde.

The original text

The only references found to date for the a play by this name appear in the Dutch publishers' journal Niewsblad voor den Boekhandel(1875, p. 149), in F.C.L. Bosman (1980, p. 472) and in Ingmar Koch's article (1997), citing Bosman.

Possibly based on (or a Dutch translation of) an unknown French original, perhaps a forgotten work by Joseph Bouchardy ()[1] , since an author named "P. Regland" is also associated with Bouchardy on the website VIAF[2].
