18th Century Drama
A Play

The 18th century was a period of expansion rather than change. Many theatres were built during this time to accommodate the growing audience. Larger, lively audiences demanded a flow of new plays.

Variety type performances became popular with an evening's entertainment offering selections of comedy, tragedy, ballet, music and one-actor skits. Dramas were often oversimplified portraying good prevailing over evil. [SB] {TT}
