Theatre and Disorder in Late Georgian London

Marc Baer

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the role of theatre in helping shape and sustain English nationalism, and contains an analysis of how concerns about patriotism or the English identity influenced the disorder in Covent Garden. One argument that is presented in this chapter is about the Old Price riots and how these reflected a collective or social memory of theatre in 1809.

Keywords:   role, theatre, English nationalism, patriotism, English identity, Covent Garden, Old Price riots
