Performance history in South Africa
1865: According to a reviewer in The Cape Argus of 28 December, 1865, Burnand's play was partly plagiarized in the opening scene ("The Depths of Darkness, and Mystic Still and Laboratory of the Demon Alcohol") of the hugely extravagant Christmas Pantomime of Little Jack Horner, or Harlequin A.B.C., put on by Alfred Ray and R.S. Cooper in the Theatre Royal, Cape Town, on 26-7 December.
