Suckling's earliest play, Aglaura was staged in 1637 by the King's Men at the Blackfriars Theatre - not because they thought it was a good play or a potential popular hit, but because Suckling subsidized its production, reportedly spending between £300 and £400.

Sir John Suckling was born in February, 1609, into a prominent gentry family. Shortly after this abortive courtship, Suckling entered into a relationship with the woman he called Aglaura, probably Mary Bulkeley of Beaumaris, Anglesey. His father, also Sir John, was a longtime member of Parliament who held a number of minor positions at court; in 1622, he purchased the office of Comptroller of the King’s Household, which he occupied until his death in 1627. Despite the intensity of feeling that Suckling expresses in his few surviving letters to Aglaura, the affair flickered out by 1639, when Mary married a local squire.
