This playbill announces Mr. Weller’s Watch! Or, the Time O’ Day which was performed at the New Strand Theatre, London, from August 10th through August 17th, 1840.  Malcolm Morley, writing in The Dickensian, states that Mr. Weller’s Watch! is “Boz completely lost sight of.”  The play is a strange combination of Pickwick Papers and The Old Curiosity Shop.  Quilp, from the latter novel, is one of the principal characters.  Quilp was performed by Attwood, an actor who was cast in a number of plays based on Dickens’s works, including Barnaby Rudge, Martin Chuzzlewit, and A Christmas Carol.
