Fielding's play Pasquin (1736), subtitled A Dramatick Satire on the Times, is a famous satirical attack on pantomime, which was then in vogue on the English stage. It is one of a series of dangerously political plays that led directly to the passage of the Licensing Act of 1737. The play is set on a stage during a morning play rehearsal. The actors are actually rehearsing two plays, a comedy and a tragedy, before an overbearing director and some lookers-on.
