"Let's ramble": Fantastic Scenography in Aphra Behn's 'The Rover'

Kate Aughterson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article argues that Behn's radical dramaturgy creates street scenes and spatial stage blocking which both limits and delimits the space for female bodies on the stage as ways in which gendered notions of space and identity can be realised through performance in the Restoration theatre. This thesis is tested against two RSC performances of The Rover.
