The Country Squire, or Two Days at the Hall
Also referred to simply as The Country Squire by some sources.
The original text
First performed at the Theatre Royal Covent Garden in London, on January 19th 1837.
The full title as published in Webster's Acting National Drama by Chapman and Hall in 1837(?), is The Country Squire, or Two Days at the Hall, though it is wrongly given by Bosman (p.416) as The Country Squire, or Two Days at the Hill. However, this may have been an error made by the performers rather than the historian.
