Ladies and gentlemen players of Smock Alley... Pray silence for a moment. We are proud and privileged to welcome Miss Peg Woffington and Mr West Digges to our theatre for this season. It is our fervent belief that their presence in our company will not only enhance the prestige of Smock Alley, but also swell its coffers.
Thank you, Mr Sheridan, for your cordial welcome. A blessing it is indeed to find oneself among a company of such eminence. And dare we hope that so prodigious a turn-out from the members of the gentry for this first rehearsal augurs well for our new season?
