This introduction provides a broad overview of the primary argument and major themes of the book. It offers a critique of the bifurcation of theatrical and political activities that has long been a prevailing feature of scholarly approaches to Sheridan, and argues that a study which reads his political activism, playwriting, and theatre management as thoroughly intertwined can function to illuminate and refine our understanding of the broader interfaces between drama and politics at work in Georgian culture

Keywords: theatre; drama; politics; critical introduction; Sheridan

Chapter.  6422 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Literary Studies (Plays and Playwrights) ; Literary Studies (1500 to 1800)
