Lost to both a reading and theatrical audience for at least a hundred years, the plays collected in Sisters of Gore span the development of Gothic melodrama from the 1790s to the 1840s. John Franceschina examines the background of the theatre which nurtured the genre and offers insight into how melodrama should be both analysed and performed.
John Franceschina is a composer and Associate professor of Drama at Pennsylvania State University.
