Anyone in London next month might be interested in this “dramatic reading” about Samuel Pepys and the theatre. Here’s the full blurb:

PEPYS AND THE PLAYHOUSE
A dramatic reading devised and presented by Colin Pinney
Thursday 16 June 2011, 7pm (doors open 6:15pm)

In his own words Pepys gives a frank picture of the intrigues and affairs (including his own) of the 1660s, wrestling with his conscience — and sometimes his wife — as he follows the drama, on and offstage, of the Restoration playhouse. This was the age of plague, fire — and Nell Gwyn. The performance takes place in the Withdrawing Room of Dr Johnson’s historic house in the City of London. In costume.
