[Two Broadsheet Playbills for Performances of:] HARLEQUIN GULLIVER OR, THE FLYING ISLAND [etc]
by [Swift, Jonathan - Pastiche]
London: Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, 1818. Two small folio broadsides, 320 x 200 mm and slightly smaller. Somewhat ragged at edges, with small chips, one with discoloration in left margin from having been mounted, but good. Two broadsheets for performances of this pantomime pastiche of Gulliver, in company with performances of other works. It is most likely an adaptation of FRIAR BACON, OR HARLEQUIN GULLIVER (ca. 1783) attributed to Charles Bonner. This version of HARLEQUIN GULLIVER was first presented at the Theatre Royale in late Dec. of 1817, and one of the broadsheets specifically promotes the scene designs by John Henderson Grieve: the Isle and Palace of Laputa, The Astrologer's Cave, etc. The broadsheets also announce productions of GUY MANNERING; BOMBASTES FURIOSO; and BELLAMIRA; OR, THE FALL OF TUNIS.
