COMPLETE TITLE: Thespis: or, A Critical Examination into the Merits of all the Principal Performers belonging to Covent-Garden Theatre. Book the Second. By Hugh Kelly, Author of the First.

The ideal continuation of Thespis: or, A Critical Examination into the Merits of all the Principal Performers belonging to Drury-Lane Theatre, published anonymously in 1766 (see), which contained a violent attack on the most important actors and actresses of the Drury Lane Theatre. This second part is less violent and vulgar in tone and concerns the actors of the Covent Garden Theatre.
