Ireland, Enlightenment and the English Stage, 1740-1820
Scholars of eighteenth-century Britain, Ireland, and Enlightenment theatre will welcome this book as it uncovers the considerable contribution made by Irish actors and playwrights to Georgian English theatre. It connects Irish patriotism with new historiography, revealing how theatrical culture demanded political and economic autonomy.
