Peck’s Bad Boy Playbill

Chas. Guinness was an unauthorized producer of this play. This playbill was printed in 1885 for a production in Milford, New Hampshire. The three acts noted are different from the three acts of the authorized play written by Pidgin. The New York Mirror stated that “Guinness is presenting a garbled version of Peck’s Bad Boy in the smaller New England towns”. In December, 1886 Guinness produced a take-off of the Peck’s Bad Boy play called “Fun in a Grocery Store”.
