Farewell Season



Garrick’s final season (1775–1776) included performances as Ranger, Abel Drugger, Lear, Hamlet, and Richard III, but he went out as Don Felix in his adaptation of Susanna Centlivre’s comedy, The Wonder! A Woman keeps a Secret, at Drury Lane Theatre on June 10, 1776.  Audiences embraced him as Don Felix and he gave them an “inimitable performance.”
