A Cultural History of Theatre in Age of Enlightenment provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the cultural history of theatre in the eighteenth century. Drawing together contributions from leading scholars, this volume examines the intersection of theatre and revolution during this period. Each chapter takes a different theme as its focus, including institutional frameworks; social functions; sexuality and gender; the environment of theatre; circulation; interpretations; communities of production; repertoire and genres; technologies of performance, and knowledge transmission.
