Today, Lord Strange's Men returned to their fairly popular play Muly Molocco again, which they had last performed two and a half weeks ago. The play was about Abd el-Malik's struggle for the throne of Morocco; you can read more about it in the blog entry for 21st February.

The play continues to hover in the mid-range of box office; its takings so far have been 29, 34 and now 28 shillings.
