    From a new production Holcroft's The Road to Ruin on 3 January 1880, to the 1899 pantomime season, when the audience cheered a snub to the Boer leader in Jack and the Beanstalk, this year-by-year record of notable theatrical events of the 19th century covers legendary performances by great actors, Shakespeare revivals and premieres of works by, among others, Wilde, Ibsen, Chekhov and Gilbert and Sullivan, with quotations from contemporary reviews and over 220 illustrations.
