Abstract

This chapter argues that the plethora of nautical dramas that figured pirates in the mid-Victorian era were a result of the complex relationship between theatre practitioners and publishers. The publisher T.H. Lacy in particular was adept at printing acting editions to which he had no legal copyright and his business was founded on a creative piracy that was a fundamental symptom of theatrical culture.
