|Main Creator:||Franks, Matthew, 1987- author.|
"This book is addresses theater history and material culture, starting with the Victorian theater. It is about audiences' taking back ownership of the plays they saw in theaters. They did this by forming private play-producing societies (also called subscription societies or clubs). The theater subscriptions that we have today descend from these societies. Today's theater canon derives heavily from the plays produced by these societies"--
