The R-18 Collective

Re-Activating Restoration & 18th-Century Theatre for the 21st-Century

The R/18 Collective is a group of international scholars committed to dramaturgical knowledge in the service of theatre makers and other researchers. We believe the theatrical repertoire from the 1660s to the 1830s provides insights into the deep histories of race, gender, sexuality, ability, nation, and capital that continue to shape anglophone culture and the world.
