Mrs Malaprop Goes to War

Thu 18 June, 6pm
Running Time: 1 hour

Mrs Malaprop is Sheridan’s most famous character, perhaps the greatest comic creations of the Georgian stage. Beginning with her celebrated malapropisms, this talk will explore what Mrs Malaprop’s creative use of the English language tells us about Sheridan, his politics, and the anxieties of a culture on the brink of a war.

A talk by Professor Robert Jones citing new research from The Sheridan Project at the University of Leeds
