Ally Sloper on Stage

Creators: Sabin, Roger

The essay explores the relationship between a comic and another artform – namely Ally Sloper’s Half Holiday and music hall theatre. It concerns how a new template was set for the entertainment business, anticipating the corporate capitalist leisure culture of the 20th and 21st centuries. A subsidiary theme concerns how a fictional character, Ally Sloper, could transcend his origins in print to become a cultural resource for performers – and the general public - to draw upon.
