A closet drama is a genre of dramatic literature that's meant to be read rather than performed on stage—a play that can dodge stageability and censorship, and has done so throughout history.

THE CONVENT OF PLEASURE is a play about a utopian retreat where women can live and love freely without men. It was written in 1668.
