(d) FREDERICK NEEBE (1843-97). Theatre Manager: Exeter, Weymouth, Devonport, Bath. Starting as an actor, he then became manager of the aforementioned theatres; at one stage of all four simultaneously. In each of these towns he presented a wide range of Victorian theatrical entertainment from Shakespeare to Sensation Plays, from Burlesques to farce. This was also the period when the D'Oyly Carte companies began touring the operas of Gilbert and Sullivan; and Frederick Neebe has his place in D'Oyly Carte history as the man who brought a number of these companies to one or more of his four theatres on a variety of occasions.

BOOK551 JOSEPH, Tony MAY FORTESCUE "Substantial Damages" May Fortescue (1859-1950) was born Emily May Finney, the daughter of a London coal merchant.
She joined the D'Oyly Carte Gilbert and Sullivan Company in 1881 for the initial run of PATIENCE, in which she created the small part of Lady Ella. When IOLANTHE replaced PATIENCE she created the small part of Celia. She left D'Oyly Carte in 1883. In 1885 she formed - and found fame with - her own theatrical company.
Meanwhile, though, she had taken her first step into the limelight by becoming engaged to a young aristocrat, Arthur Cairns, Viscount Garmoyle. When, a few months later, Garmoyle jilted her, it made her a celebrity. And when, shortly after that, she sued him for breach of promise, her celebrity status became tinged with noteriety.
"When a woman brings an action of this sort, having for its object the acquisition of hard cash, she place herself beyond the pale of delicacy and sympathy.
She cannot serve sentiment and mammon.
The indignation which one feels against the faithless deceiver is very much moderated when the forlorn maiden takes upon herself to revenge her own woes." (The Era, 1884)
It was like TRIAL BY JURY being played out in real life.
