|Sir Thomas and acting

in consequence of the missive, Theatricals, penned by Bridget D
In Ch. 13, when Edmund is trying to persuade Tom against acting, he says, "In a general light, private theatricals are open to some objections, but as we ae circumstanced, I think it would be highly injudicious....it would show a great want of feeling on my father's account, absent as he is, and in some degree of danger." And he then goes on to mention Maria's situation being delicate.
So I don't know if the issue is that Sir Thomas himself objects to private theatricals, but that for the Bertrams to be engaging in such while their father is gone is what is objectionable.
