in consequence of the missive, Well,actually, if we accept, penned by JulieW
I've decided I can't have my 'Haunted Tower' because the NA text says this:
'The comedy so well suspended her care that no one, observing her during the first four acts, would have supposed she had any wretchedness about her. On the beginning of the fifth, however, the sudden view of Mr. Henry Tilney ...etc'
I'm not sure this would support Ellen's calendar either as it doesn't sound like 2 comic operas:
'..for she soon recollected, in the first place, that she was without any excuse for staying at home; and, in the second, that it was a play she wanted very much to see.'
So it was a comic play, in 5 acts that Catherine would have heard of... so it was perhaps famous and not being tried out in Bath.... A Sheridan perhaps? What would you put your best guess at?
