Fisk, D. P. (2008). The restoration actress. In S. J. Owen (Ed.), A companion to restoration
drama. (pp. 69-91). Malden, MA: Blackwell Publishing.
Fisk (2008) looks to explain the realities of the Restoration actress. She begins her article by explaining how women were forbidden from the stage in England before the Restoration of the English crown, due to Puritanical beliefs. Puritans did not like actresses on stage because of the portrayal of sexuality and the blurring of gender identify. Women were added to the stage because many people spent time on the continent of Europe during the Commonwealth period of English history. Restoration theater differed from other theaters by invoking “everyday life and manners” (p. 75). Despite the popularity of women on the stage, the actresses had to deal with a lot of abuse; however, acting allowed women to make their own place in society. Moreover, having actresses on stage allowed plays to draw attention to the female form, an aspect lacking in earlier theater productions. Actresses also allowed new subject matters, such as the domestic realm, to be portrayed on stage. Fisk (2008) ends her article by reminding the reader that actresses were much more versatile than given credit for and their talent on stage was what was important at the time.
I find that this article will be useful for my topic as it expresses not only the changing role of women in the Restoration period, but also an in-depth view of their lives during that time.
