Books By Author David Worrall

Harlequin Empire by David Worrall Harlequin Empire, Paperback (January 2016)

Under the 1737 Licensing Act, Covent Garden, Dury Lane and regional Theatres Royal held a monopoly on the dramatic canon. This work explores the presentation of foreign cultures and ethnicities on the popular British stage from 1750 to 1840. It argues that this illegitimate stage was the site for a plebeian Enlightenment.

Celebrity, Performance, Reception by David Worrall Celebrity, Performance, Reception, Hardback (September 2013)

Worrall presents an innovative transposition of social assemblage theory into eighteenth-century British theatre and performance history.

Theatric Revolution by David Worrall Theatric Revolution, Paperback (September 2008)

This book uncovers the role of stage censorship during the Romantic period, an era otherwise associated with freedom of expression. Theatric Revolution examines this censorship and those who struggled against it.

Politics of Romantic Theatricality, 1787-1832 by David Worrall Politics of Romantic Theatricality, 1787-1832, Hardback (April 2007)

This book sets out the political and cultural conditions regulating dramatic writing during an era of censorship and monopolistic royal theatres. Using a range of plays and manuscripts, it argues for the centrality of burletta, the theatrical locus of the attacks on the Cockney school of poetry and the vitality of the metropolitan dramatic scene.
