Master of the Knights of Malta,
Today, Lord Strange's Men performed their satirical comic tragedy The Jew of Malta again. You can read more about this play in the blog entry for 26th February.

The company has settled into a groove of performing The Jew of Malta approximately once every fortnight. As with the last few performances, the play is not achieving stunning popularity, but nonetheless it continues to perform better than the average play in the repertory.

  • Saturday, 26th February - 50 shillings
  • Friday, 10th March - 56 shillings
  • Saturday, 18th March - 39 shillings
  • Tuesday, 4th April, 43 shillings
  • Tuesday,  18th April, 48 shillings and sixpence
  • Friday, 5th May, 41 shillings
