Event Description

The 19th-century theatre has left very little legacy in terms of plays and dramatic literature but its story of boisterous, riotous audiences, flamboyant melodramatic drama and stage spectacle is an exciting one. The reformation in the latter years of the century established our modern theatres and audiences and enabled writers like Bernard Shaw, Harley Granville Barker and Oscar Wilde to emerge and the knighthood of Sir Henry Irving in 1895 seem to seal the theatre's search for respectability.
