The stage portrayal of the Victorians in recent times is a key reference point in understanding notions of Britishness, and the profound politicisation of that debate over the last four decades. This bookthrows new light on works by canonical playwrights like Bond, Edgar, and Churchill, linking theatre to the wider culture at large.
