In addition to London commercial theatres, audiences enjoyed dramatic performances performed by strolling companies at local fairs, provincial inns, and in private performance. Dublin’s theatre at Smock Alley offered recent and classical plays. In England, both boys’ and girls’ schools included original performances as part of their curriculum, including interludes and operas that were later done on the professional stage.
