Synopsis

"Theatre in Belfast, 1736-1800 provides the first comprehensive daily record of surviving evidence relating to the nearly seven hundred theatrical performances that took place in Belfast, Ireland, from the earliest recorded staging of a play there, in 1736, through the year 1800. In the first decades, Belfast theatregoers welcomed the visits of colorful rough-and-tumble strolling companies of actors who performed in such venues as The Vaults, Mill Gate, and Rosemary Lane theatres. This book offers a glimpse at the lives of such provincial strolling actors on the early northern Irish circuits, as well as at the members of the touring companies of professionals from the Dublin, Scottish, and provincial English theatres, who also visited Belfast regularly in the early years."
