Summary The 19th century in Britain was a period of innovative and creative theatrical activity that ranged from Romantic closet dramas in the early years of the century through melodramas dominated by spectacle and emotion to social dramas; it also included a restructuring of business practices that took the British theater into the next century. The development of drama was driven by the changing composition and tastes of the public.
