Product Description

The Grubbe family were of Priory House, Blythburgh, Suffolk, and Horsden House, Buckinghamshire. These programmes, one for Cox and Box in duplicate and one for Beauty and the Beast, would have been the official programmes for giving to audiences of the plays which were being produced privately. All the cast in both productions were members of the Grubbe family. Music for both was by Miss Grubbe. The venue is not identified but further research may solve this.
