My Wife's Out
The original text
First performed in London at the Theatre Royal Covent Garden, London, on 2 October, 1843, and was most probably published in the same year, with 10 editions being published between 1843 and 2019 (according to WorldCat Identities).
The most widely held early version text was published by John Dicks (as No. 699 of Dicks' Standard Plays) in one volume with Borrowing a Husband, or Sleeping Out by William T. Moncrieff (1794-1857), in 1885(?).
