The Theatre Considered as a Moral Institution (Die Schaubühne als eine moralische Anstalt betrachtet) was a paper delivered by the German playwright Friedrich Schiller on 26 June 1784 to the palatine "Deutschen Gesellschaft". It was later published. In it he asked, "What can a good permanent theatre actually achieve?" (Was kann eine gute stehende Schaubühne eigentlich bewirken?).
