Sample text

In short, they became merchants of dramatic experience, introducing proto-capitalist relations into what had been a collective enterprise that had flexible roles and an absence of hierarchy. An important aspect of the development of commercial theatres is their impact on dramatic form. The extensive literature on this topic is not, however, my concern here. Rather, I want to focus on the commercial 28 Taking Fame to Market theatre as a place (alongside the press) where a new geometry of class relationships could be concretized and dramatized (Agnew, 1986: 111).

The implied tolerance for the non-patented theatres was probably not dissociated from licence fees’ contribution to the Royal purse – given Charles’ revenue problems – and the theatre in particular provided opportunities for sexual adventures, which Charles himself was not slow to exploit. But it also expressed a patrician tolerance for ‘low’ or plebeian entertainments. Moreover, the practice of commerce, much disparaged by the aristocracy, had carried the connotation of sexual venality from Elizabethan times (Bruster, 1992).

But such freedom comes at the cost of isolation and alienation from collective processes (Simmel, 2011). It is now in the micro-texture of exchange that the remnants of collective identity must be affirmed or, in other words, consciously performed. In the old ‘trust’ economy, individuals striking a bargain had still to attend to perceptions of fairness operating in the community and governed by ancient rights (Thompson, 1971). Despite differences in social standing, a broad equality could be evoked within the interior of the act of exchange in which the buyer and the seller were deemed to be men of honour accepting a common obligation.
