The Theatre in America during the Revolution

Research output: Book

Abstract

Whether moralistic or satirical, the plays of the American Revolution offer unique insights into the sympathies and fears of both loyal and dissident parties, and so serve as a telling document of a socially turbulent age. Brown's extensive research coheres into an invaluable theatrical and historical chronicle that should prove a useful resource for those working in the field. Content Provided by Syndetics.
