    More Information:

    Lee was confined in Bedlam from 1684 to 1689.  Shortly after his release, the "Massacre of Paris" was staged at the Theatre Royal in November 1689. It was probably written in 1679 but was banned at that time for its fiercely anti-Catholic sentiments. Soon after, Lee went mad again, was confined, escaped, and soon after was found dead under mysterious circumstances. Wing L853. W & M 734. Pforzheimer 591. ESTC r3238.
