(p.238) 11 Conclusion
Theatre and Disorder in Late Georgian London

Marc Baer

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses a number of arguments and opinions about the 1809 theatre riot. One opinion is that of Francis Place, who thought that the riot was caused by Catalani, private boxes, and new prices. It can be said that the essence of the controls used against those participating in the breakdown of social order can be found in a certain perception of the past and an essential theatricality of life.

Keywords:   theatre riot, Francis Place, Catalani, riot, social order, theatricality
