The present volume examines Judith Butler?s concept of gender performance in Angela Carter?s _Nights at the Circus_ (1984), Sarah Waters?s ¬_Tipping the Velvet_ (1998) and Peter Ackroyd?s _Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem_ (1994). All of them depict how female performers make use of the stage to expose gender identity as an act performance and in doing so they destabilise the public/private dichotomy.
