    New Victoria Theatre, Woking. The New Victoria Theatre opened in and established itself as one of the foremost theatres in the South East. Boasting state of the art facilities, excellent acoustics and clear sight lines it has hosted first class theatre from the likes of the Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre and the Peter Hall Company. Indeed, my central claim is that the mid-Victorian theatre both embraced and resisted the dominant middle-class goal of respectability — for the theatre as a cultural institution, for the acting profession and even for the social standing of theatre audiences. Just what the mid-Victorians meant by ‘respectability’ was always a bit unclear.
