AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Musical entertainment.

Described in an Age review as 'a musical interlude' (1 May 1856, p2) and in Bell's Life in Sydney as having been arranged expressly 'to display [the] versatile talents' of the Buckingham Family (19 April 1856, p 2), Troubles of Matrimony was said to have been originally titled Mr and Mrs Pringle. This is the same title as a comic entertainment written by J. T. de Truebe y Cosio and performed in Drury Lane in 1832.
