Performance history in South Africa
1854: Was apparently to have been performed in English, as A Peculiar Position, on 11 July 1 by Garrison Players , as after piece to Charles the Twelfth (Planché). It seems this did not take place due to the illness of the stage manager.
1854: Probably performed some time later in July, with the addition of The Two Bonnycastles (J.M. Morton).
1854: Repeated on Friday, 18 August, now with another addition, that of The Honeymoon (Tobin).
