Actresses as Working Women: Their Social Identity in Victorian Culture

Synopsis

Using historical evidence as well as personal accounts, Tracy C. Davis examines the reality of conditions for 'ordinary' actresses, their working environments, employment patterns and the reasons why acting continued to be such a popular, though insecure, profession. Firmly grounded in Marxist and feminist theory she looks at representations of women on stage, and the meanings associated with and generated by them.
