Rzepka, Charles J. Sutcliffe, Barry. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, Obi continued to be popular in the theater: it received twenty performances the next summer and fifteen in ; it continued long in the repertoire of the theaters in London, the provinces it was a hit on the York circuit in and , and the United States. Despite local interest, it did not play in Jamaica until , and then only for one performance of a much altered version See Hill.
Murray, Esq.

ACT II. Dramatis Personae. Melodrama ACT I. Cox, University of Colorado at Boulder When John Fawcett's pantomime Obi; or, Three Finger'd Jack opened at London's Haymarket Theatre on 2 July for what was then a spectacular run of 39 performances in a single summer the longest single season run for any play at the Haymarket between when Colman the Younger took charge of the theater and when Colman's Horses of Quedlinburgh tied Obi , 1 England was in the midst of a decades long argument over the institution of slavery. The precepts of his country were instilled into his heart, and he did no wrong.
Conscience smote him not; he knew it not. He was not hardened, for he was awake to feeling. He would do no harm to woman, child, or any defenceless being.
