Jocrisse Corrigé ou La Journeé aux Accidans
The original text
First performed at the Théâtre Variétés, Paris, 21 September 1812 and published in Paris by Barba in the same year.
According to F.C.L. Bosman, citing Arrago (who ascribes the play to "Seurin") Charles Etienne Boniface had made a Dutch translation of it for performance in 1815, though the Dutch title is not mentioned, nor are details about the performance given. It may be that the play is being confused with performances of the two act play Jocrisse in Eenen Nieuwen Dienst (Dorvigny), which was done that year by Honi Soit qui Mal y Pense, led by Boniface.
