Subject: Theatre Outside London
I shall be grateful for two answers and a reference.
It is well known that during the days of the Parliamentary republic
between Charles I and II, that the theaters in London were closed,
though there were some clandestine performances. What about the rest of
the country? Were there pockets of resistance theater elsewhere?
It is well known that only two London theaters were given licenses to
operate in 1662, though there were some clandestine performances as
well. Were there any theaters in other parts of the country?
I'd be grateful for a couple of quick answers, but even more grateful
for a reference where I can learn more about this on my own.
All the best,
