A play by Moliere
Translated by A.R. Waller, M.A.
Amphitryon was played for the first time in Paris, at the Theatre du
Palais-Royal, January 13, 1668. It was successfully received,
holding the boards until the 18th of March, when Easter intervened.
After the re-opening of the theatre, it was played half a dozen
times more the same year, and continued to please.
The first edition was published in 1668.
