The Theatre Considered as a Moral Institution (Die Schaubühne als eine moralische Anstalt betrachtet) was an essay delivered by playwright Friedrich Schiller[1][2][3] on 26 June 1784 to the "Deutschen Gesellschaft" society.[4] The essay was later published.

In the essay, Schiller asked, "What can a good permanent theatre actually achieve?" (Was kann eine gute stehende Schaubühne eigentlich bewirken?).
