Theatre and Disorder in Late Georgian London

Marc Baer

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an examination of high politics, as well as the connections with national and local governmental authorities and the London press. It can be said that a close connection between theatre and politics existed in 1809, and that the Old Price riots were more than just an event in theatre history. Discussions in this chapter revolve around the interpretation of theatre and politics by considering the problems for government in responding to the riots, and the role of the press in their origin and development.

Keywords:   high politics, London press, theatre, politics, Old Price riots, theatre history, riots, press
