Inverness Theatre Bill advertising the drama 'Serjeant's Wife'

An Inverness theatre playbill, for Friday 29 July 1842. The entertainment for the evening was the drama 'Serjeant's Wife' in which 'Old Cartouch' was played by Mr Mark and 'La Fleur' by Mr Thompson. The evening was set aside for 'Mr Watkin's Benefit' who 'begs to assure his Patrons that the Entertainments have been scrupulously selected with a view to their gratification'. The entertainments have something to offer everyone.......'for the Ambitious a lesson of human frailty; for the Compassionate, a melting delineation of sorrow...' and '...for the Fastidious, an omelette souffle that cannot raise a qualm'.

The first theatre in Inverness is said to have dated from 1805 and was situated on what was once called Theatre Lane, near Inglis Street
