THE FATHER'S OWN SOV. A play, formerly in the possession of the company performing at the Cock-pit Theatre. It is mentioned in a MS. dated 1639, preserved in the Lord Chamberlain's Office; and Pepys, who saw it acted in 1661, notices it as "a very good play." A small portion of it, formed into a droll under the title of the Doctors of Dullhead College, is printed in the Wits, or Sport upon Sport, 1672. http://bit.ly/a1KMj6
