DescriptionA scene on the stage. The banner above the scene reads: 'Judge not by Outside Appearances'.
A sign pinned to the door on the left reads:
'Manager in Distress after which a Comedy called A New Way To Pay Old Debts with the farce of the Bankrupt'.
From left to right:
A footman in blue jacket with epaulettes and turned-back cuffs facing right. Stout man facing right and bending forward slightly. He wears matching red jacket, waistcoat and breeches and an unpowdered bag-wig. Facing him is a queue of people. First is a bedraggled man with unkempt long dark hair and a hat under his arm. A small child stands behind this man and pulls at his coat, and behind the child stands the man's wife, holding a baby.
Following the woman there is an affluent looking couple. The woman wears her hair in curls on top of head, with ostrich feathers, and what appears to be a crucifix around her neck. The man wears a red coat, cream breeches and waistcoat and black buckled shoes and stockings. He wears a three-cornered cocked hat and toupéel, and holds a stick in his right hand. Behind them, a man stands facing the audience, hands behind his back and eyes closed. He is without a wig and wears a dark waistcoat and breeches, and mustard-coloured coat. On the far right a man in a red jacket and top boots is speaking to someone through a half-opened door. Available on CD 157.
