18  September  1809

Author, Unknown unknown The entry reads only 'theatre', but it seems highly likely that Godwin went to see Macbeth on the opening night of the re-built Covent Garden, which had been destroyed by fire the previous year. Kemble's attempt to raise the price of tickets provoked the Old Price riots, lasting three months. While the riots severely disrupted performances, Godwin continued to visit the theatre during this period. See 'Covent Garden Theatre opens', 18 September 1809.
