"We did not mind trifles, however. -- One of our most admired Performances was Macbeth, in which we were truly great. The Manager always played Banquo himself, his Wife my Lady Macbeth. I did the Three Witches and Philander acted all the rest. To say the truth, this tragedy was not only the Best, but the only Play we ever performed; and after having acted it all over England and Wales, we came to Scotland to exhibit it over the remainder of Great Britain. We happened to be quartered in that very Town, where you came and met your Grandfather."
It's so funny, because Laura says "one of our most admired" and yet they only performed one. Hilarious too that Laura says she played the three witches in Macbeth all by herself(!). Philander acted all the rest:-D.
