This work provides a ready reference to significant productions of plays on the London stage during the period 1837 through 1901 and includes extensive information concerning both plays and players. The compiler’s introduction offers a fascinating overview of the cultural and social attitudes toward theatre in the Victorian Era, and the ways in which theatre reflected societal changes, class differences, and the tastes and interests of the theatre-going public. This single-volume reference offers a wealth of previously unobtainable factual information and an opportunity for broader study of a large array of theatrical personalities.
