Today Lord Strange's Men returned to Muly Molocco again, a play that they frequently performed, and which they had last staged just over a week 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.

After its surprise success during Easter Week, the box office returns for Muly Molocco have stabilized, and it is back to being a solid, mid-ranking play.

Monday, 21st February - 29 shillings
Tuesday, 29th February - 34 shillings
Friday, 17th March - 29 shillings
Wednesday, 29th March - 62 shillings
Saturday, 8th April - 23 shillings

Monday, 17th April - 30 shillings
