The  Royal Grecian Theatre was situated on the City Road in Shoreditch,originally called the Eagle Tavern of nursery rhyme fame .George Augustus Conquest took over the management of the Grecian Theatre in 1872, on the death of his father,Benjamin Oliver,who is named on this pass and therefore dates it as before 1872.Alone, or in collaboration, he wrote some 40 pantomimes, celebrated for their brilliant flying ballets and acrobatic effects, and about 100 melodramas.
